This volume deals with Ananda K. Coomaraswamy's contribution to the geology and mineralogy of Ceylon (Sri Lanka). The material in the volume has been arranged in three sections: the first contains his articles on geology and mineralogy of Ceylon published in scientific journals; the second includes the classic Ceylon Administrative Reports which he wrote in 1903-06; and the final section is mainly concerned with several comments on Coomaraswamy's work which highlight his reputation as mainstream geologist.His greatest contribution to geology was his discovery of the mineral Thorianite in 1904. It was characteristic of Coomaraswamy's self-effacement and scientific modesty that instead of immortalizing his own name, he preferred to name it Thorianite. It is hoped that this volume on Coomaraswamy's contribution to the earth sciences, quite different from his undoubted greatness as an exponent of the Perennial Philosophy, will be of great interest to his innumerable admirers.Printed Pages: 350.
