Copyright page states this title was registered with the clerk of the District of Philadelphia in 1812 and this is therefore either the second or possibly the first edition. In any event, original early printings of this are scarce indeed. Fascinating glimpse into the state of knowledge of the field in the early years of the American Republic. Much emphasis in this volume on mineralogy. A previous owner marked certain pages of particular interest by turning down the top blank corners of the pages. Of special interest were sections on gold, silver, copper, iron and uranium. Notation of the page dealing with uranium in pen on front blank endpaper. Dark leather binding with plenty of rub and wear, and top of spine a bit chipped. Pages browned and with moderate sporadic stains and other signs of use. Lacks frontispiece called for. Green morocco spine label. Binding still tight. As interesting as the text itself are the two pages of medical books advertised at back with prices noted. Octavo, 338pp + 2pp Ads for Medical Books.
