Ian Jackson, a long standing EGS member and a former Publications Sales Officer and Council member, died in the summer. He had an collection of geological books, maps and memoirs. We are sure that Ian would like these to be used by others interested in geology and members who would like books and/or maps are invited to ask for them. Items not requested by the end of November will be passed to an appropriate charity shop.

Please address requests to Robert Gatliff at robertwgatliff@gmail.com. Delivery within Edinburgh will be by bike, and we can post materials further afield. Donations are requested for EGS funds: EGS Council will discuss the appropriate use of all donations received for example in making additional grants to students in 2021. Once availability has been confirmed with Robert Gatliff, you can make a bank transfer to EGS or use the Paypal button to make a donation.
