Caption: Olot volcanic field. Frontispiece of volume three (1833) of 'Principles of Geology' by Charles Lyell (1797-1875). This work established the principle that geological changes acting over long time periods have shaped the landscape. The example here is the volcanic peaks around the town of Olot in north-eastern Spain, looking north towards the Pyrenees. Lyell has used colour to distinguish rocks of different ages, with blue for ancient primary rocks, grey for secondary rocks, and red for the most recent volcanic rocks. The volcanic features are also labelled across bottom.
