"In this volume an attempt is made to summarize and link together the modern theories which endeavour to explain the origin, the formation, and the growth of the units of the Solar System....The plan followed by the author has been that of dealing with the Sun and the Earth's neighbours among the Planets from the point of view of astronomical and physical theory: and thenceforward of following the course of geological and biological growth on the one planet, the Earth, of which there is any intimate knowledge."--From the author's Preface.
