A FINE PRESENTATION COPY OF THE STUDENT'S EDITION OF "ELEMENTS OF GEOLOGY", INSCRIBED BY THE AUTHOR TO HIS WIFE IN THEIR LATER YEARS.

Lyell and his wife Mary Elizabeth were married in July 1832, and after a geological honeymoon, they settled in Hart Street, Bloomsbury, close to the British Museum and to the Geological Society's premises in Somerset House. "Mary was well educated, and fluent in French and German, and was soon helping Lyell with translation, and offsetting his handicap of poor eyesight for reading. However, she seems to have been somewhat excluded from the scientific conversation at their dinner parties...." (Martin Rudwick, Oxford DNB)
