by JEFFREYS, Harold (1891-1989).
Cambridge:: University Press, 1952., 1952. 4to. xi, , 392 pp. 10 plates, figs., index. Navy gilt-stamped cloth. Ownership label and signature of Richard A. Weiss. Very good. "Jeffreys' book, The Earth: Its Origin, History and Physical Constitution, first published in 1924, presented the first systematic account of the physical state of the Earth as a whole and influenced the study of geophysics for many years as it went through successive edition. However, it was not without controversy. In latter editions, Jeffreys continued to oppose the ideas of mantle convection, continental drift, and plate tectonics, which were generally accepted after about 1965." – George S. Mumford, [in]: Thomas Hockey (ed.), Biographical Encyclopedia of Astronomers, p. 594.
