The subject of this volume is the diverse suite of carbonate rocks known collectively as the Magnesian Limestone, that was formed near the margins of shallow tropical seas during the last five or six million years of the Permian Period. These unique rocks have been studied for more than 160 years and the names of some of the early workers - Geinitz, Murchison, Phillips, Sedgwick, Sorby - would grace any geological hall of fame. Despite this formidable assault, and the efforts of a host of later workers, the Magnesian Limestone still retains many of its secrets.

The book amply fulfils its objectives, and will be required for those concerned with the choice of sites for preservation. It will also be invaluable to anyone wishing to locate the best sites for studying particular aspects of rocks ... This is a beautifully presented book ... The quality covers, binding and paper ... and clearly written text, together with some fine illustrations, make it a pleasure to open and refer to - Geological Magazine; Marine Permian of England is a catalogue of detailed locality descriptions that will provide an invaluable reference for anyone planning to visit or lead a trip to these fascinating carbonate rocks. - Geoscientist
