Sheet Memoirs - England

Geological reports, or memoirs, have been published for most map sheets in England. The English map memoirs were issued, as were the maps, in Old Series and then in the New Series after 1900. What follows is the list of New Series memoirs; the very occasional Old Series memoir is listed by its equivalent new series number(s) and the old series sheets are listed in the description.

New Series Memoirs

The new series sheet memoirs are referred to by the place names in their titles. The full titles vary from ‘ The Geology of ....’, to the more frequent ‘Geology of the country around/near/between....’ , sometimes incorporating a direction such as ‘north of, east of....’, etc. For brevity, the full titles have been omitted and only the place name(s) are given. Early editions were issued as paperbacks on thin printed paper with paper or thin card covers (1) which generally have not survived well. All titles are 9.5 x 6.25 inch/24 x 17cm format unless otherwise noted as A4 sized (11 x 9 inch/28 x 23cm), the newest format.

Many of the copies listed below were rebound (2) by libraries, museums and geology departments; often the original card covers are bound in at the rear. From the 1920s to 1940s these were buff coloured (4). Later editions were published as hardbacks, at first, as lurid orange printed covers (3) and more recently with relevant b/w landscape photographs (5). In the 1980s and 1990's, a few memoirs were re-issued in paperback form with green covers, sometimes with colour photographs (6), originally in the original format and latterly as A4 format. Some of the latter are still current issues. Nearly all of the listed memoirs have library stamps and/or book plates.

The published sheet memoir is becoming a thing of the past. Revised and abridged versions are issued in colour printed ‘brief explanation’ booklets, typically 36 pages, sold with the maps. Many memoirs are now out of print and are available only as print-on-demand (POD) photocopies at a standard price of £32 (2016 prices) from the BGS. Gradually PODs and sheet explanations will be the standard record available to the general public.
