Reprinted from Proceedings of the American Philosophical Society. Vol. LIV, No. 218, August, 1915.

Among the more striking of such formations may be mentioned the Quebec, Martinsburg, Collingwood, Utica, Maquoketa, Genesee-Portage, Ohio, Chattanooga, and Caney, formations ranging from the Ordovician to the Pennsylvanian. To aid in the interpretation of such black shales, the writer presents herewith the main results set forth by Professor J. F. Pompeckj, of the University of Tubingen, in a publication that wll not be of wide distribution in America. The following is a decided condensation and in part a free translation of his exhaustive paper, which is replete with bibliographic references." pp.259-269. ex-mus. stamp on front cover. slight fading to covers, otherwise VG+.
