A Succinct Account of the Lime Rocks of Plymouth


Richard Hennah

Plymouth: W Curtis; London: W B Whittaker (1822), illus., iv + 81 pp.

Prepared by Michael Steer

The Rev Richard Hennah (1766-1846) was chaplain of the forces at Plymouth, with an interest in geology and brother of the celebrated Captain William Hennah, RN, CB, whose largely undistinguished career was suddenly highlighted by his assumption of command of HMS Mars at the battle of Trafalgar upon the death of that ship's captain, who was decapitated by a cannon ball. Hennah's geology book focuses upon "Observations respecting the Limestone of Plymouth, extracted fom two Letters, dated September 26, 1814, and January 19, 1815. addressed to Henry Warburton, Esq. Secretary". This rare book was produced from a digital copy held by the Bodleian Library that can be downloaded from Google Books. Google has sponsored the digitisation of books from several libraries. Those on which copyright has expired are available for free educational and research use, both as individual books and as full collections to aid researchers.
