This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1880 edition. Excerpt: ...and D, the Red run section shows two intermediate small coals, one 25 and the other 65 feet above bed D; but they are both entirely valueless; and their absence from the Mclntyre section either shows that they are of too local a nature to persist even across the small intervening distance between the sections; or, that they were not noticed in cutting roughly down across the more exclusively and massively sandstone interval at Mclntyre. 213.
