Main Question or Discussion Point

I'm looking for a college-level comprehensive earth/planetary science book(s) for self-study. I would prefer something that is very detailed, especially if it delves into the history of the science.

I also welcome any recommendations for books that are highly detailed with respect to the history of atomic physics, quantum mechanics, and/or statistical physics, something that gives specifics about the foundational experiments conducted and theories developed and maybe even relates them to what one would find in a typical quantum mechanics textbook. A textbook with a huge amount of context, basically, but it's the history I'm most interested in. It should be written for a physics-grad level reader, not one of those popular science sorts of things.
