Abstract:

This series consists of two almost identical versions of a published geological chart and a small accompanying published key prepared by James Hall. It is unclear whether these charts are initial drafts of a later published version or one of several successive versions.

The chart is entitled ''A chart giving an ideal section of successive geological formations with an actual geological section, from the Atlantic, to the Pacific Ocean. The whole illustrated by the characteristic fossils of each formation, by James Hall... Albany, N. Y., R.H. Pease, 1852."

Both versions of the chart are lithographed and mounted on cloth measuring 60 x 73 1/4" (144 x 177 cm) overall. The lower half of the chart depicts geological sections, some hand colored and annotated, illustrating the stratigraphy of specific areas. Elaborate representations of characteristic fossils of each formation are depicted on the top portion of the chart.

The legend contains the title of the chart, the author and publisher's name, and date of publication. The significance of the handwritten annotations is unknown.
