AN ESSAY ON THE INVESTIGATION OF THE FIRST PRINCIPLES OF NATURE: TOGETHER WITH THE APPLICATION THEREOF TO SOLVE THE PHAENOMENA OF THE PHYSICAL SYSTEM, J. Murray, 1784 & 1786, first edition, 2 volumes, 388 pp & 399 pp with 3 folding plates respectively; Part I: Containing a new philosophical theory, whereby first principles, with their material substances and effects, are traced and exhibited; the limits of inertness assigned; the causes of elasticity and transparency discovered; the real mode of light's propagation determined; and various other phenomena clearly explained. The whole scientifically investigated and demonstrated; Part II: In which the nature and fuel of the sun are physically investigated, the real principles of cold and darkness are assigned, the nature and motion of comets explained . and the phaenomena of electricity, gravity, and cohesion, solved by the mechanical agency of two material principles which actuate the universe, and produce all the operations of nature, considerable wear to the leather bindings with the covers being loose and the fore edge corner tips being worn, one leaf with a closed tear across its width, but with the contents being near fine and three folding plates present, a great candidate for a nice rebinding.
