"Meanwhile, Faujas had been exploring the hilly districts of Vivarais and Velay in the east-central France and found that the basalt there was also volcanic ... he embodied them in 1778 in a great folio work on the ancient volcanoes of Vivarais and Velay (accounts of other researches were included). The work established once and for all that basalt, a rock important scientifically because of its distinctive characteristics, its widespread occurence, and the manner of its association with other kinds of rocks, was the product of volcanic action" (D.S.B. IV, p. 548). - A quarto edition published at the same time is more common. - Vors., Tit. u. Widmungsbl. tls. wasserrandig. Einige Bl. gebräunt u. stockfl., Vors. gelockert.
