Earthshock
(London: J. M. Dent & Sons, 1979) 0460043188. . 8vo; original turquoise boards, lettered in gilt on spine; price-clipped laminated pictorial dustwrapper; pp. xii + (iv) + 256, incl. index; plates; maps; diagrams. Short (5mm) tear to top edge of dustwrapper; some minor spotting. Very good condition. "Upheavals from within, bombardment from without - can the Earth survive? A single great natural disaster or a related sequence of disasters could destroy civilization as we know it and even threaten the existence of Man himself... In this timely and important book two outstanding geologists, drawing upon their extensive research experience of the Earth and its history, assess the many dangers that menace our everyday lives, highlighting their survey with numerous case histories of previous natural disasters. Posing the alternatives for Man - catastrophe or survival - they investigate the political and social implications of large-scale extraterrestrial bombardment, consider the likely environmental repercussions of massive earthshocks and make far-seeing recommendations for mitigating the worst effects of future catastrophes that will inevitably afflict the Earth.".

Olivine Melilitites and Associate Intrusives of the Southwestern Cape Province [Cover Title Reads: Olivine Melilitite Excursion Excursion]
([Johannesburg]: Geological Society of South Africa, 1990). . 210 x 147 mm; printed wrappers; pp. (iv) + 60; photographs, diagrams, tables and maps. Slightly rubbed, with trace of browning; earlier owner's name and note penned on first page. Very good condition. "As the title indicates, this excursion focuses mainly on the volcanic and shallow-intrusive olivine-melilitite occurrences of the Robertson and Sutherland districts in the southwestern Cape. In age they span the Cretaceous-Tertiary (K-T) boundary. The route traverses the Cape Fold Belt and the lower portion of the main Karoo basin. An additional, but unrelated, feature of interest to volcanically-inclined geologists will be the interbedded volcaniclastic sediments of the early Permian Collingham Formation (Ecca Group), to be inspected in a roadcutting.".

On Intraformational Folding Connected with the Glacial Bed in the Table Mountain Sandstone
(Johannesburg: The Geological Society of South Africa, [1926]). . Ownership inscription of K. H. Barnard, curator of the South African Museum, to upper cover. Offprint from 'The Transactions of the Geological Society of S. Africa', Vol. XXVIII, 1925. 246 x 187 mm; side-stitched printed wrappers; pp. [19-25]; 3 plates, with explanatory tissue-guards. Wrappers a little sunned, lightly soiled, with trace of foxing. Good. "This paper is the outcome of recent visits paid to certain mountain areas in the Western Province, for the specific purpose of investigating some peculiar intraformational folding below the Upper Shale Band of the Table Mountain Sandstone, of which no previous record appears to have been made in South African Geological literature. The account of the Wellington Sneeuwkop has been written by one of us, that of the Somerset Sneeuwkop area by the other two. The conclusions as to the origin of the folding embody, however, the views of all three authors.".

KING, R. C., AND R. M. MAUD
The Geology of Durban and Environs
(Pretoria: Department of Mines, Geological Survey, 1964). . Geological Survey Bulletin 42. 240 x 150 mm; side-stitched wraps; pp. iv + 54, incl. index; 4 text figures; 3 folding diagrams; 1 large coloured folding map in endpocket. Wraps sunned and rather creased; some spotting; page corners curled. Good. English text with Afrikaans summary. 'The earliest published reference to the geology of Durban is by Sutherland (1868), a former Surveyor-General of Natal, in a paper read before the Natural History Association of Natal on June 27, 1868. He identified the main rock formations of the area, recognised the profound influence of faulting upon their distribution, described the occurrence of Recent sands, and stated for the first time the hypothesis that the Dwyka tillite, previously called "claystone porphyry" in the Cape, is a glacial deposit. This last subject he followed up in a second paper published in 1870... The principal reports upon the geology of Durban have latterly been those of Krige, published in 1932. Therein, after thorough field-work, were set out all essential facts, and the logical deductions from them. The present authors record with pleasure that their current geological map departs in no major particular from that of Krige though his was constructed upon a much less adequate basis of land survey, and the whole area was remapped de novo upon the Trigonometrical Survey sheets during the years 1948 to 1954.' - Authors' Introduction..

LEHMANN, OLGA
Look Beyond the Wind
(Johannesburg: Hans Merensky Holdings, 1989). . Text facsimile of the Timmins edition of 1959. 8vo; original blue rexine, lettered in gilt on spine and upper cover; pp. 232, incl. index; plates. Faint browning to endpapers; merest trace of spotting to top edge. Near-fine condition. "South Africa's mineral wealth is one of her greatest blessings. From the gold mines of the Witwatersrand and the Free State to the diamond fields of Alexander Bay, the copper workings of Messina and the coal fields of Middelburg, the country's prosperity radiates from the nucleus of her mineral exploitations. It is therefore not surprising that the men, who, through their knowledge and skill, discovered this hidden wealth and set the huge wheels of industry in motion, should occupy an important place in the annals of our history. Dr. Hans Merensky is one of these men. It was not without reason that he was called The Wizard Geologist, for his geological discoveries rank amongst the most important not only in South Africa, but in the world. In the comparatively short space of twenty-six years, he was responsible for opening up important deposits of platinum, diamonds, chrome, vermiculite and phosphate, and the combined value of these deposits is astronomical".
