Description:

London: L. Davis, et al., 1787. Third edition corrected, complete in four volumes (pp. xvi, 267; xi, 272; xii, 296; xi, 367, appendix). Tall octavo (21 cm) in original polished and mottled calf; complete with 65 fine copperplate engravings by Lodge to accompany the various demonstrations in mathematics and physics which featured, among others, a diving bell, a planetarium, and a magic lantern. Rich gilt titles and decorations to spines.  Volume I (Arithmetical and Mechanical Experiments), Volume II (Experiments in Optics, Chromatics, and Acoustics), Volume II (Electrical and Magnetical Experiments), Volume IV (Experiments in Pneumatics, Hydrology, and Pyrotechnics). The discovery of an error in the first edition of Hooper’s book, an error which first appeared and then was corrected in a later edition of Edmé Gilles Guyot’s Nouvelles récréations physiques et mathématiques, suggests Hooper may have, shall we say, borrowed enthusiastically from that source error and all.  Martin Gardner in… Read more

Description:
Washington: Government Printing Office, 1887. First edition (337 pp., index). Large 4to, half leather, five raised bands, gilt titles to spine, marbled edges and endpapers (chipped front edge); featuring 12 handsome full-page colour plates of native birds by Robert Ridgway and 9 full-page b&w engravings of fishes. This report, the third of five reports comprising the Arctic Series, is in four sections which, partly as a personal narrative and partly a scientific tract, describe the birds, mammals, fishes, and insects of Alaska. Nelson’s health, compromised by the rigours of the expedition into difficult country, prevented him from completing the report, and the responsibility of concluding the work passed to Henshaw. Found in a distraught state, the book has been expertly repaired and restored. An entirely presentable copy. Colour plates of birds
