Geological Sketches

A page from an 1823 notebook kept by John Patten Emmet depicts the various geological strata found in coal and chalk basins in England. In 1825 Emmet became the chair of the School of Natural History at the University of Virginia, a position that embraced the disciplines of botany, chemistry, geology, mineralogy, and zoology.
