Geological Commission of the Cape of Good Hope Publications

The Geological Commission of the Cape of Good Hope published a number fof series of publications during its existence from 1896 to 1911

Reference: Price, R.R.M. Catalogue of Publications of South African Geological Surveys and Government Publications on the Earth Sciences. The Geological Commission was established in November 1895 with John X. Merriman as Commissioner and George Corstorphine as Geologist, and operated until 1911 when it was amalgamated with the Geological Survey of the Union of South Africa. Dr. A.W. Rogers was appointed on the 11th January 1896. Staff details may be seen in Public Service Lists of the Cape Colony. The term "Geological Survey" was used synonymously with "Geological Commission". All the publications in this series are out of print.

1 ANNUAL REPORTS

The annual reports were issued in two forms: as an ordinary Blue Book presented to both Houses of Parliament, printed on common paper and in octavo size; and a limited number printed on thick paper, in small quarto size. The pagination of the First Report is different in the two editions, the type having been entirely re-set, but the contents are identical. In the reports following the First, the pagination of the two editions is the same, and one setting of type has served for both. – Schwarz, E.H.L., Index to the Annual Reports. The 8vo page numbers are inserted here in italics. The ‘common paper’ 8vo. editions are bound in Annexures to the Votes & Proceedings of Parliament; copies in the Archives of the Council for Geoscience are the small quarto editions.
