"As the result of his years of teaching at the College de France, Cayeux produced his Introduction Ã l'etude petrographique. . ., published in 1916, out of print in 1927, and reprinted in 1931. In this beautifully illustrated monograph that obviously filled a need among geologists, he gave an exhaustive account of all the methods of analyzing sedimentary rocks: physical, microchemical, and chromatic. He then proceeded to distinguish all the constitutive elements of these deposits, describing each individual mineral species as well as the various organisms that contributed to their genesis. Of particular interest is a long chapter on the microstructure of the skeletal remains of living and fossil organisms. Sedimentary petrographers are still waiting for a modern equivalent of this masterpiece." DSB, III, p. 161. First Edition.
