11 PHILLIPS, John. Illustrations of the Geology of Yorkshire; or, a description of the strata and organic remains, accompanied by a geological map, sections, and plates of the fossil plants and animals, Part 1: The Yorkshire Coast & Part 2: The Mountain Limestone District.
London John Murray 1835-1836. 
Part I is the second edition (1835). Two volumes, 4to. [I] xii, 186pp, coloured frontis map (geological map of eastern Yorks), 14 plates, 9 sections (7 of which are hand-coloured). [II] xx (includes list of subscribers), 254pp, 25 monochrome plates (the last two - sections and diagrams, and a geological map - are folding). Contemporary half calf and papered boards; the extremities quite rubbed and the spine faded and rubbed. Ex- Kendal Literary and Scientific Institute with its small plate in each volume and cataloguing number (quite large) in blue pencil, and (smaller) in ink, on the endpapers; a later owner's name also. Moderately heavy foxing early and late, and on most of the plates (but not the sections in Part I), otherwise the text pages clean. The top inner corners (the top 35mm) of the four leaves following the frontis map in Part I have come away from the binding, and the gutter at the title-page and frontis is cracked, but the binding still solid. The folding map in Part II has had its folds reinforced (on the verso), small tear to top edge of plate XIII (away from the image) in the second part. There are quite a number of pencilled annotations to the fossil plates (mostly names added to the illustrations). A well-used set in reasonably good condition.
