It affords, therefore, a view not merely of the past labors of the Association, but of its plan and objects, which, it will be observed, differ essentially from those proposed by the other scientific societies of this country." From the website of the Scholarly Societies Project sponsored by the University of Waterloo Library : "The Association of American Geologists was founded in 1840, and in 1842, it became the Association of American Geologists and Naturalists. The Association ceased to exist on 1848, September 20, when its members convened to resolve their society into a new organization: the American Association for the Advancement of Science "

Princeton, Princeton University Press 1982 0691082944 / 9780691082943 Hardcover Very Good in Good dust jacket 
Xx, 443, [1] pages, well illustrated (some in color) , diagrams, cloth, DJ, very good. Translated from the German by Lenore Fischer and Detlef Busche. Translation of: Klima-Geomorphologie. From the dust jacket: "A summation of the lifework of one of the century's greatest geomorphologists and the first major piece of Budel's writing to be translated into English, this volume offers a theory of the influence of climate on the earth's relief system and an analysis of past climate changes, particularly as they affected landscapes such as western Europe and the eastern United States." From the Encyclopedia Britannica: "Morphogenetic classification was first proposed by Julius Büdel, the German geographer, in 1945. The morphogenetic concept asserts that, under a particular climatic regime, certain geomorphic processes will predominate and produce a characteristic topographic expression. Proponents of the concept say that climatic controls outweigh rock type as a landform factor because the resistance of a rock type to erosion is dependent on the climate to which it is subjected.
