About this Item

Bowditch, Nathaniel (1773-1838). Memoir of Nathaniel Bowditch. By his son, Nathaniel Ingersoll Bowditch [1805-61]. 172pp. 2 plates, including frontispiece. Boston: Charles C. Little and James Brown, 1840. Original cloth, gilt-lettered label on front cover, moderate wear, faded strip along foot of front cover. Light finger-soiling, date stamp on verso title but very good. Library bookplate and stamps. First Separate Edition, the second overall, having first been published in Volume IV of the elder Bowditch's translation of Laplace's Mécanique celeste (1839). "The best biography of Bowditch remains the one prepared by his son . . . published in Volume IV of the Mécanique celeste and separately in subsequent editions. Despite its understandable filiopietism and a tendency to ramble, the work does convey much information and shows signs of honest attempts to gather information by consulting the Bowditch papers and old friends" (Dictionary of Scientific Biography).
