The Paper was presented at the Association’s July 1868 Honiton meeting. The Paper is essentially an early catalogue or compendium of mineral locations throughout the county. These minerals are concentrations of potential economic value. For the genealogist, the paper provides names of those with interests in and association with the early geology of Devon. The author, Mr Townshend Monkton Hall was a noted Mineralogist who resided at Pilton. His obituary is available here. The Paper, from a copy of a rare and much sought-after journal can be downloaded from the Internet Archive. Google has sponsored the digitisation of books from several libraries.
