Default Alexander Fowler, Geologist.....or not??

Some time back I came into the possession of a number of boxes of books, mining and geology subjects. Many of these books have the owner's signature, 'A. Fowler' on the endpapers, there is also addressed correspondence to this person.

There are a number of other papers written by him in this collection.

Alex Fowler's signature on his copy of 'Coal Measure Plants':
