About this Item

New York, Collins and Company, octavo, vi, 270, [2] p., and two plates. A very handsome near Fine copy in 3/4 recent antique calf and marbled boards, gilt-lettered red spine label, deckled edges. Light, scattered foxing to text. Hinges solid, binding firm. From the library of the Franklin Institute, Philadelphia, with their oval stamp on the title page and elsewhere, and later from the library of John Sinkankas. A copy of a loosely-inserted letter from Sinkankas includes the following: "[Bruce] is, without doubt, one of the rarest of early American mineralogical works. We have never had a copy of it before, and it is with some reluctance that I part with it now." Only one volume of this short-lived journal was issued; Bruce died in 1818. Merrill, p. 38-40. BMNH 38. Hazen 2107. Not in Ward and Carozzi. Bookseller Inventory # OG5000
