Title: ‘From the Katchnakar – looking north’

Creator: Roderick Impey Murchison (1792-1871)

Description: From a scrapbook entitled ‘Scenes in the Ural’, a collection of watercolours, lithographs, drawings and letters compiled by Roderick Impey Murchison, relating to his travels in Russia between 1840-1845. The majority of the lithographs, and some of the drawings on which the lithographs are based, were published in: Murchison, R I, ‘The geology of Russia in Europe and the Ural Mountains’, London: John Murray (1845).

Murchison, was elected to the Society on 3 December 1824, was a Scottish geologist who famously travelled in Russia between 1840 and 1845 to study its Palaeozoic rocks. His studies in Russia resulted in his defining a third geological system – the Permian, named after Perm – to add to the two he had already classified – the Silurian and the Devonian.
