THEORY of the EARTH; or an INVESTIGATION of the Laws observable in the Composition, Dissolution, and Restoration of Land upon the Globe. By JAMES HUTTON, M.D. F.R.S. EDIN. and Member of the Royal Academy of Agriculture at Paris
[First published in Volume I of the Transactions of the Royal Society of Edinburgh, 1788. The text below is taken unaltered from the above-mentioned source, except that some characters (e.g., the letter -s) have been given in contemporary form rather than in the standard eighteenth-century form. The text also does not yet include the illustrations Hutton adds at the end of his piece. Very short footnotes have been included in the main text (in square brackets). The numbered links are to Hutton's own longer footnotes. The latter are unchanged except for the addition afterwards, in some places, of an English translation of the French text quoted by Hutton. These translations are by Ian Johnston. There are a number of careless typographical errors in the French, especially with the accents. These have not been corrected. This text is in the public domain, released August, 1998.
