In 1544 began the publication of the series of books to which Agricola
owes his position.
The first volume comprised five works and was finally
issued in 1546; it was subsequently considerably revised, and re-issued in 1558.
These works were: De Ortu et Causís Subterraneorum, in fivebooks,” the
first work on physical geology; De Natura Eorum quae Effluunt ex Terra, in
