Key Works of Geological Literature, 1600-1900

Key Works of Geological Literature, 1600-1900 was project to digitize rare books and maps relating to the development of geology, particularly of the "English School". The digitized items include rare works important to the history of science, geology, palaeontology, petrology, and mineralogy. Many are vividly illustrated, depicting fossils, rock sequences and landscapes.

The project ran from 2002 to 2004, and included over 150 items from the Bodleian and Oxford University Museum of Natural History library. Maps and drawings were captured in full colour, and and text was captured in black-and-white. The images were migrated to Digital Bodleian in 2015.
