The Geology Of Devon
Edited by E.M. Durrance, D.J.C. Laming and E.B. Selwood
Devon shows perhaps one of the most varied displays of geology in the British Isles. Intended for anyone with an interest in geology, The Geology of Devon covers the geological development of the county and adjacent areas from Devonian times to the present day. Each appropriate chapter has a list of representative localities so that the book can also serve as an excursion guide for field work.

"A useful book for an introduction to Cornish geology." (OUGS Journal, 22(1), Spring 2001)
"Altogether this is a most informative and readable book, and the paperback version is very reasonably priced. It is recommended for anyone who wishes to gain an informed up-to-date introduction to the geology of this geologically complex, yet historically important area." (Mineralogical Magazine October 1999)
