1896 USGS Geology Report STONES USED FOR BUILDING ROADS

Detailed report on the geology of road-building stones, published more than 111 years ago.

We take today's concrete pavements for granted, but in the late 19th century roads were built out of individual stones, set in place by crews of workmen. This report examines the geology of the stones used for this process in the state of Massachusetts.

The report was compiled by Nathaniel Southgate Shaler (1841-1906), the first dean of the Harvard Graduate School and president of the Geological Society of America.

This is his original report, as published in the 16th Annual Report of the United States Geological Survey, 1894-1895, Charles D. Walcott, Director. It consists of 64 quarto pages (approximately 7-3/4" x 11-1/4"), plus seven full-page photographs.

This report is complete and in very good condition, with no marks, rips or tears. The scans below show some of the contents.
