Additional Information


Martin Lister (c. 1638, Radclive, England - February 2, 1712, Epsom), English naturalist, stratigrapher, zoologist and physician. He contributed numerous articles on natural history, medicine and antiquities to the Philosophical Transactions. In 1683 he communicated to the Royal Society (Phil. Trans., 1684), an ingenious proposal for a new sort of maps of countries; together with tables of sands and clays, such as are chiefly found in the north parts of England. In this essay he suggested the preparation of a soil or mineral map of the country, and thereby is justly credited with being the first to realize the importance of a geological survey.
