Abstract

Miscellaneous papers include lists of specimens, personal correspondence as well as a hand drawn (or printed and hand colored) map of the glacial formations for Southern Christiana [Oslo], Norway. The colored regions indicate geological characteristics and also include location names. Map is written in Norwegian and dated 1859, composed by Norwegian Geologist Theodor Kjerulf. Some notations appear to be in a different handwriting, possibly Jeffries.
