About this Item

First edition, 4to, pp. vii, [1], 269, [1]; 4 engraved plates (3 folding), woodcut diagrams and tables in the text; the fine Macclesfield copy in contemporary mottled calf, elaborate gilt decorated spine, red morocco label; edges stained yellow; engraved bookplates of Gen. G. L. Parker, and the South Library bookplate, Earls of Macclesfield, and with 2 small pressure stamps on preliminaries. In a new maroon cloth clamshell box. Volume I is all that was published at this time. These tracts were expanded and reprinted in 1812 in 3 volumes. The ninth tract is entitled "New Experiments in Artillery." Hutton was professor of Mathematics at the Royal Military Academy at Woolwich, where his experiments took place. Not such a common book, by any means. ESTC locates only a dozen copies, and just 3 in the U.S.: American Philosophical Society, and the Huntington and Smithsonian. Bookseller Inventory # 43279
