From the introduction:

The intense interest in oil has created such a demand for the Survey publications bearing on the oil possibilities of the state that Bulletins 23 and 24 are out of print. The present bulletin is a reprint of the greater part of Bulletin 24 with which are included the most important parts of Bulletin 23. The parts of Bulletin 23 omitted are chiefly descriptions of formations, as the same formations are described in Bulletin 24. One of the maps accompanying the Bulletin is taken from Bulletin 23, and the other is taken from Bulletin 24.
