Climate, landforms (see geomorphology ), and soil are examined as to origin and are classified as to distribution. Drawing on the biological sciences, fauna and flora (biogeography) are brought into an areal pattern. Geography was first systematically studied by the ancient Greeks, who also developed a philosophy of geography; Thales of Miletus, Herodotus, Eratosthenes, Aristotle, Strabo, and Ptolemy made major contributions to geography.

Geomorphologists seek to understand why landscapes look the way they do, to understand landform history and dynamics and to predict changes through a combination of field observations, physical experiments and numerical modeling.

Davis regarded geomorphology as a branch of geography, with geomorphic processes furnishing the topography upon which geography ‘resided’

Davis regarded geomorphology as a branch of geography, with geomorphic processes furnishing the topography upon which geography ‘resided’. He, together with a number of like-minded geologists, geomorphologists and natural scientists, founded the Association of American Geographers in 1904, in part as a forum for his views (Orme 2005). It may be noted, though, that in his old age Davis accepted the idea of parallel slope retreat, such as is usually associated with the name of Walter Penck. Davis's changed views were given in lectures delivered at the University of Texas in 1929 but were not published until as late as 1980 (King & Schumm 1980).

In line with Morris's politics of fellowship, the book was a collaborative effort, with poems and calligraphy by Morris and figurative decoration by Edward Burne-Jones and two other artists. This and other books produced around the same time demonstrate Morris's interest in developing decoration appropriate to the content of the text, as well as an understanding of original scribal methods rather than a superficial 'copying' of particular historical styles.
