Strona iv - All Subscriptions are payable in advance, on the 1st of January in each year.

Strona 258 - ... result is that ridges like Box Mountain, in Bolton, and Satan's Kingdom, in New Hartford, although made of finely foliated schist, stand high above the gneisses which surround them. The chief topographic features of the area occupied by crystalline rocks are the elongated hills extending in a direction from a little east of north to a little west of south. This is the general direction of the foliation of all southern New England, and this structure has been a controlling factor in producing...
Strona 213 - THE GEOGRAPHICAL ASSOCIATION. THE Annual Meeting of the Geographical Association was held at University College, London, on Wednesday, January 8, 1908.
Strona 178 - The cosmopolitanism and the commercial activity that characterize so many seaboards are reflected in the fact that, with rare exceptions, it is the coast regions of the world that give rise to a lingua franca or lingua geral. The original lingua franca arose on the coast of the Levant during the period of Italian commercial supremacy there. It consisted of an Italian stock, on which were grafted Greek, Arabic, and Turkish words, and was the regular language of trade for French, Spanish, and...

Strona 4 - ... battering-rams hated him, that he was a thorn in their flesh, a stone in their crooked paths. If the revelations of Hoshkanyi created deep apprehensions in him, it was out of no personal fear; in the present instance it was clear that a trap had been set for the purpose of decoying him into a false move. It was the first time that anything of the kind had been attempted; and Topanashka looked upon it as very serious, not for his individual sake, but because it showed that it was undertaken jointly...
Strona 86 - ... cultivation, and in their rear a steep slope impeding communication with their hinterland. Inaccessibility from the land, a high degree of accessibility from the sea, and a paucity of local resources unite to thrust the inhabitants of such coasts out upon the deep, to make of them fishermen, seamen, and ocean carriers. The same result follows where no barrier on the land side exists, but where a granitic or glaciated soil in the interior discourages agriculture and landward expansion, as in Brittany,...

Strona 81 - ... affects this function. Area and coastline are not dead mathematical quantities, but like organs of one body stand in close reciprocal activity, and can be understood only in the light of their persistent mutual relations. The division of the area of a land by the length of its coastline yields a quotient which to the anthropo-geographer is not a dry figure, but an index to the possible relations between seaboard and interior. A comparison of some of these ratios will illustrate this fact. Germany's...
