From the Back Cover
The Mapping of Geological Structures Ken McClay Department of Geology, Royal Holloway University of London, UK Detailed mapping and analysis of the structural features of rocks enable the 3D geometry of their structures to be reconstructed. The resulting evidence of the stresses and movement patterns which rocks have undergone indicates the processes by which they were formed, and allows evaluation of past deformations of the earth’s crust. Written to show how one actually describes, measures and records rock structures such as folds and faults with the emphasis on accuracy, detail and on–going interpretation throughout, this handbook gives students and enthusiasts the practical information and guidance which allows their fieldwork to become vastly more rewarding. " the author is to be congratulated on producing such an excellent text. The whole range of mapping techniques that an undergraduate student will require are described and the book will still be immense help to post–graduates setting out on their research work. The book represents extremely good value and is thoroughly recommended." C.R.L. Friend, Mineralogical Magazine

As for the book "used" status, the damage to it was minimal - some stickers, a little folding, but nothing major. A wonderfully useful book :)
I would buy a see through bag or some thing to waterproof the book in the field as the page get soaking in the rain and smudge
Overall: extremely helpful guide of Faults in the field
This is a concise guide to the techniques used to construct accurate geological maps. It explains how to draw cross-sections, draft and present "fair copy" maps and prepare geological diagrams from fieldwork suitable for inclusion in reports. There is also a brief chapter on report writing.
