Paris, Levrault and Clermont-Ferrand, Bouillet, Thibaud-Landriot, 1830. 8vo (20.0 x 13.1 cm). 48 pp.; five handcoloured lithographed plates (two much larger, folded) of geological views and profiles of the volcanological region of Puy-de-Dôme. Later red quarter calf over marbled boards. Gilt title on the spine. Marbled endpapers. Speckled edges.

A well-illustrated study on the geology and stratigraphy of the Massif Central in the Auverge region in France. The views are particularly nice. It was written and illustrated by local geologist and medical doctor Henri Lecoq (1802-1871) and fellow geologist, banker, and curator at the Musée municipal de Clermont-Ferrand, Jean-Baptiste Bouillet (1799-1878). We think it must be quite rare as we never have even seen a copy, nor is it found in Ward and Carozzi or the Cat. BM(NH). A few light spots, one plate a bit age-toned, otherwise a very good copy.
