Memoirs of the Geological Survey of India, 1860, Vol. 2

Excerpt from Memoirs of the Geological Survey of India, 1860, Vol. 2 This, the second volume of The Memoirs of the Geological Survey of India, is devoted to papers relating to the geological structure of Central India. It will be seen, on perusal of these reports, how much information has been added to the previously existing knowledge regarding this important section of the Indian territories; and, further, how materially it has been necessary to modify, and even how totally to alter, the conclusions arrived at by earlier observers. Yet there are few portions of India, (as will be seen by a reference to the following pages, ) which have received more frequent, or more careful illustration, than that herein described. Only those who have been individually obliged to wade through such a series of detached papers, as will be found.enumerated in this volume, can realize the feeling of utter disappointment, which grows in intensity as they turn from one to the other, and seek in vain for some common clue to guide them through the maze, some connecting link to bind these isolated facts into some general grouping. And this feeling is only deepened by the thorough conviction, with which they must be impressed, that each and all of these enquirers had honestly and fairly noted down their observations: that there had been no desire to uphold some favorite theory, which might have warped their judgment; no anxiety to disprove the assertions of others, which might have prejudiced their testimony. It is simply this, each was isolated; each detached; there is not even a community of language, such as to enable the students to see that different things have not been described under the same names, or the same things under different words.
