An original illustration from the 1945 "Book of Knowledge", depicting a cross-section through a volcano.
Print reads: "The artist, J.P. Wilson, shows in this picture how a volcano in action might look. Molten rock (lava and gas are being forced up through several cracks, or fissures. At the top of the central fissure is a great hole, or crater. From this, and from smaller craters, the lava flows down the mountain, sweeping everything before it. It rapidly hardens into a fine-grained, dark rock, and you can see in the picture how the mountain has been built up by layer upon layer of lava that welled up inside the mountain, flowed over the rim and hardened."

Measures approximately: 6x9.25" or 15.5x23.5cm
