Abstract

In Professional Paper No. 14 there were collected the chemical analyses of igneous rocks published from 1884 to 1900, inclusive, arranged according to the quantitative system of classification recently proposed by Cross, Iddings, Pirsson, and Washington. In order to supplement this work it has appeared advisable to select the more reliable and complete of the earlier analyses collected by Justus Roth and arrange them also in the same manner for publication. Petrographers would thus have available for use according to the new system almost the entire body of chemical work of real value on igneous rocks, the exceptions being a few analyses published prior to 1900 which may have been overlooked by both Roth and myself. The two collections would form a foundation as broad as possible for future research and discussion. I must express my sense of obligation to the United States Geological Survey for publishing the present collection of analyses, and my thanks to my colleagues in the new system of classification for their friendly advice and assistance.
