S17: The Proterozoic in Canada

History books from the Biblio-Mat are often dry and textbook in nature. This week’s submission is no exception.

Book: The Proterozoic in Canada
Submitted by: Trevor S.

Published in 1957 by The Royal Society of Canada, it looks like a regal tome with a nice green binding bearing a seal. Inside, it looks like there’s a good amount of images to offset the text, which is probably a good thing as a book published in the 50’s delving into the details of earth circa two billion years ago needs all the help it can get (there were rocks… some water… more rocks…). 

At least there are maps, and who doesn’t like maps?
