Matthew Forster Heddle: Mineralogist and Mountaineer

Matthew Forster Heddle: Mineralogist and Mountaineer $18.62


This biography chronicles the life of one of Scotland’s most famous mineralogists, Orkney-born Matthew Forster Heddle (1828-97). His legacy includes The Mineralogy of Scotland, and more than 5700 specimens now in the National Museums Scotland collection. Written by the Heddle’s great-great-grandson the book offers a far richer portrait of this larger-than-life character than anything that has appeared before.
