311. The Origins of Stratigraphy 1719-1801, by John Fuller, London, Geologists’ Association, Guide no. 65. 51 pp.
This publication (with a misleading title - it contains materials well after its terminal date of 1801) is of at least joint authorship, as by Fuller and I, as the note on p. 51 implies:” This Guide draws much from field-itineraries and excursions organised by the author and Dr Hugh Torrens”. I had been leading such excursions, and writing such Guides, here, since at least 1975 (for the Bristol Industrial Archaeology Society; 1978 (for the British Association for the Advancement of Science) and 1988 (for the Society for the History of Natural History). Our first such joint Guides, under this title, were then produced in 1989 (for the Petroleum Group of the Geological Society of London) and in 1991 (for the American Association of Petroleum Geologists). We led a memorable, again joint, excursion, for the History of Geology Group, over 13-14 July 2002, from which John then produced his GA Guide, but without my knowledge. In this, much of the itineraries for the places na med in Bath were written by me, as were those sections on Batheaston, Tucking Mill and Hill Farm (pp. 25-49).
John’s wish to produce this alone may have been inspired by his disagreement with me over which part of Tucking Mill Cottage Smith had actually owned (p. 47). Here John gave the completely wrong reference to my work (2001, paper no.287 here). The correct reference is instead to 2003, no. 297 here, pages xxxv-xxxvii).

380. (with M.S. Rosenbaum). "a farmer": an early scientific explanation of continental drift. p.1-4. draft. (2017) The article, with A. Farmer's original book is available from Shropshire Geology.
The anonymous review in British Critic (1804) indicated that the book by "a farmer" included a detailed description of Whitcliffe, the common land facing Ludlow and site of quarrying for building stone since medieval times (Torrens, 2008). After many years of searching, a single copy has been located, in Edinburgh. Not only does the original indicates an extant interest in the geology of South Shropshire by the beginning of the 19th Century, some 30 years before Murchison's first visit, but also provides an early scientific explanation of continental drift.
