Geological Survey of Great Britain Explanations of Horizontal and Vertical Sections

From a very early stage, the Survey produced a series of horizontal sections illustrative of the geological maps and vertical sections illustrative of the horizontal sections and geological maps. Most horizontal sections were drawn on the scale of six inches to a mile while the vertical sections were drawn on the scale of 40 feet to one inch. The horizontal sections were frequently accompanied by these short explanations in booklet form of two to fifteen pages long and published between 1859 and 1891.
