Prepared by Michael Steer

Jean-André Deluc or de Luc (8 February 1727 - 7 November 1817) was a Swiss geologist and meteorologist, born in Geneva. Initially a businessman, unexpected reverses made it advisable for him to move to England in 1773. He was made a Fellow of the Royal Society in the same year, and received the appointment of Reader to Queen Charlotte, which he continued to hold for forty-four years, and which afforded him leisure and a competent income. In later life he toured Switzerland, France, Holland and Germany. On his return he undertook a geological tour through England. While at Göttingen he was appointed honorary professor of philosophy and geology in that university; but never entered upon the active duties of a professorship. He was also a correspondent of the French Academy of Sciences, and a member of several other scientific associations. He died at Windsor. This rare and much sought-after book was produced digitally from a copy in the New York Public Library collection and can be downloaded from Google Books.
