CHARLES LYELL SIGNED CARD, GEOLOGIST, CLIMATE CHANGE, CHARLES DARWIN, VOLCANOES:
HE IS THE FATHER OF MODERN GEOLOGY AND IS BEST KNOWN AS THE AUTHOR OF PRINCIPLES OF GEOLOGY, WHICH PRESENTED TO A WIDE PUBLIC AUDIENCE THE IDEA THAT EARTH WAS SHAPED BY THE SAME NATURAL PROCESSES STILL IN OPERATION TODAY, OPERATING AT SIMILAR INTENSITIES, FOR HIS PIONEERING EXPLANATION OF CLIMATE CHANGE, AND FOR HIS POWERFUL INFLUENCE ON CHARLES DARWIN
SIR CHARLES LYELL(1797-1875) SIGNED CARD, “…yours truly, Cha. Lyell”, addressed to a “Mr. Baily”, on a card 4.5 x 2.25, by the Scottish geologist who demonstrated the power of known natural causes in explaining the earth’s history. His scientific contributions included a pioneering explanation of climate change, in which shifting boundaries between oceans and continents could be used to explain long-term variations in temperature and rainfall. He was a close friend of Charles Darwin, and contributed significantly to Darwin’s thinking on the processes involved in evolution. Lyell’s interpretation of geological change as the steady accumulation of minute changes over enormously long spans of time was a powerful influence on the young Charles Darwin. After the great Chicago fire in 1871, Lyell was one of the first to donate books to help found the Chicago Public Library. He was a prolific author, which provided both income and fame. His geological interests ranged from volcanoes and geological dynamics through stratigraphy, paleontology, and glaciology to topics that would now be classified as prehistoric archaeology and paleoanthropology. The card is in fine condition, with minor age toning. #12695
