Among the numerous and highly interesting fossils found in the London clay, none are more abundant than the remains of fruits and seeds, which, although found in such amazing quantities in the Isle of Sheppey, have hitherto received but little attention from geologists, and consequently present a wide field for inquiry and research.

For many years past the Author of the present work has made these interesting remains his peculiar study, and during this period there have passed through his hands more than 120,000 fruits and seeds, from which he has selected about 25,000 specimens. He proposes to publish figures and descriptions of as many of the species as can with certainty be determined, and, as a guarantee for the accuracy of the delineations, he considers it will be sufficient to announce that the whole of the drawings and engravings will be executed by MR. JAMES DE CARL SOWERBY.

In these beautiful remains of an extinct Flora, the minute and delicately-formed vegetable tissues are preserved in the most perfect manner; and it is part of the Author's plan to give numerous highly magnified illustrations of the anatomical structure as well as of the external form.

The work will be printed in royal 8vo, and completed in about five parts, each containing from fifteen to twenty copper-plates ; many of the plates will contain from forty to fifty figures each.
