“This publication celebrates the release of the fourteenth State geological map of Western Australia, in a series that commenced in 1894. Some earlier regional geological maps are discussed, but the emphasis is on the improvement in our geological understanding of Western Australia that relies on the continuous development in scientific, analytical, and remote-sensing techniques.”

“Sed ego qui scripsi hanc historiam aut uerius fabulam quibusdam fidem in hac historia aut fabula non accommodo. Quaedam enim ibi sunt praestrigia demonum, quaedam autem figmenta poetica, quaedam similia uero, quaedam non, quaedam ad delectationem stultorum.” – Colophon to Táin Bó Cúalnge in the Book of Leinster
