[Complete] PRINCIPLES OF GEOLOGY by Charles Lyell

Today’s voice log entry is a follow-up on the Principles of geology post (Parts 1, 2, and 3) from back in 2018.

Principles of Geology: being an attempt to explain the former changes of the Earth’s surface, by reference to causes now in operation is a book by the Scottish geologist Charles Lyell, first published in 3 volumes in 1830–1833.

Lyell used geology throughout as a basis to strengthen his argument for Uniformitarianism. He used geological proof to determine that the Earth was older than 6,000 years, as had been previously contested. The book shows that the processes that are occurring in the present are the same processes that occurred in the past.

The project was open for recording on Feb 23 2018. Coordinated by Ann Boulais and with the contributions of over two dozen readers, this 46-hour behemoth of an audiobook was successfully added to the LibriVox catalog on Sep 9 2019. The CD case insert’s beautiful cover art (seen here as a featured image) was designed by Yeanne Yau.

Download or listen to Principles of geology here.

Personally, being a part of this colossal endeavor was a humbling experience. My gratitude and admiration goes to everyone involved in seeing this through to the end. Looking forward to voicing more content alongside LibriVox’s amazing community in 2020.
