Transactions of the Geological Society of Glasgow
These historical transactions, only available online through the Lyell Collection, reflect the geological themes and ideas of geologists of the time. Published between 1860 and 1963 the Transactions include papers by Croll, Geikie, Gregory, Holmes, Lapworth, McCallien, Thomson (later Lord Kelvin), Tyrrell, Richey and others whose seminal works provided important geological ideas.
The title was eventually superseded by the Scottish Journal of Geology in 1965, when the Transactions of the Geological Society of Glasgow merged with the Transactions of the Edinburgh Geological Society.
Complete print sets of the Transactions of the Geological Society of Glasgow are now rare but these online versions, captured to the highest electronic standards, are now available via the Geological Society of London’s Lyell Collection for the first time. They are fascinating reading for geologists and scholars of the history of geology and many of the articles form the basis of our knowledge today.
