The whole southern border of Eurasia advances in a series of great folds towards Indo-Africa; these folds lie side by side in closely syntactic arcs, and for long distances they are overthrust to the south against the Indo-African table-land… This circumstance distinctly indicates that the folding of the uppermost part of the Earth’s mass is, under certain conditions, only the expression of a forced adaptation… A great part of this folding is of recent age, or has been continued into very recent times; it is not certain that the movement has ended.

—Eduard Suess (1904), The Face of the Earth, vol. 1, p. 596–597
