Excerpt from Geological Magazine, 1875, Vol. 2

But while we cannot but regard with pleasure the revival of research in this important department of geological inquiry, it will be well not to overlook a source of danger in the direction which it seems to be almost exclusively taking.

The earliest speculations on the subject of Vulcanology belong to the domain of Cosmogony, rather than to that of Geology. With the smallest basis of knowledge of the actual phenomena of volcanic activity, theorists sought to build up Systems of the Earth, in which recourse was freely had to igneous action to accomplish all such Operations which were felt to be necessary for the removal of the difficulties of their hypotheses.
