Abert as Colonel in the Bureau Topographical Engineers who says that this was published at the request of J. R. Poinsett, Secretary of the Department of War for "distribution to those officers whose duty it may be to make observations on the phenomena of which it treats. . ."

One of his early jobs was as librarian and secretary of the Paris Observatory while also studying astronomy with Laplace. He came to the United States in 1832 and travelled about "he determined, by astronomical and barometrical observations, the geographical position and elevation of many important points, also collecting many interesting details respecting the history and dialects of the Indian nations, and the productions and natural history of the country" (Appleton).

Some browning, tears and chipping, uncut, some browning and soiling of fore-edges and first and last leaf, else a good copy, with a notation on the upper wrapper "The property of J. Y. Young.".

Item Description: W. Richardson, London, 1793. First Statement of Dalton's Law of Partial Pressures Dalton, John (1766-1844). Meteorological observations and essays. 8vo. xvi, 208pp. Text diagrams. London: Printed for W. Richardson . . . J. Phillips, . . . and W. Pennington, 1793. 216 x 136 mm. 19th century sheep, gilt spine, a little rubbed. Very good copy. First Edition, First Issue, with the publishers' names as above and the price on the title given as four shillings. Dalton's first book, containing his first statement of what we now call Dalton's law of partial pressures. Dalton's study of rainfall and water vapor in the atmosphere led him to claim that water vapor exists in the atmosphere as "fluid sui generis diffused among the rest of the aerial fluids," rather than as a result of a chemical reaction with air. In the appendix to the work, Dalton stated that "'the vapour of water (and probably of most other liquids) exists at all times in the atmosphere in an independent state' . . . The ideas that in a mixture of gases every gas acts as an independent entity (Dalton's law of partial pressures) and that the air is not a vast chemical solvent were thus first stated in the Meteorological Observations" (Dictionary of Scientific Biography).

Item Description: London, W. Richardson, 1793. Cont. hcalf, professionally rebacked in old style with raised bands. orig. gilt title-label preserved. XVI,208 pp. Light yellowing to leaves, scattered brownspots. Front-and end-papers brownspotted. First edition of Dalton's first book. In chemistry Dalton was the founder of "The Atomic Theory" (A New System of Chemical Philosophy 1808-27) and with his "Meteorological Observations" and supplementary lectures he laid the foundation of modern meteorology, establishing the cause of air's homogeneity and formulating the law of partial pressures. In the attempt to give solid experimental bases for his studies, Dalton laid the foundation of future atomic theory, beginning an experimental inquiry into proportions of different gases in the atmosphere.

Item Description: W. Richardson, J. Phillips, W. Pennington, London, 1793. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. FIRST EDITION, FIRST ISSUE IN ORIGINAL BOARDS of Dalton's first book; one of the foundational works in meteorology. "In 1793 Dalton moved to Manchester to teach mathematics at a dissenting academy, the New College. He took with him the proof sheets of his first book, a collection of essays on meteorologic topics based on his own observations together with those of his friends John Gough and Peter Crosthwaite. This work, Meteorological Observations and Essays, was published in 1793. It created little stir at first but contained original ideas that, together with Dalton's more developed articles, marked the transition of meteorology from a topic of general folklore to a serious scientific pursuit" (Britannica). His book "contained not only a record of his unremitting observations but also inferences of the causes of the meteorological phenomena so exposed. These reflections, which inevitably concerned the relation between air, water, and water vapour, played an important part in the evolution of his future theories. "The book began with a description of the instruments needed for observation. There followed a series of typical observations and essays on their interpretation. Then a more interesting section on the aurora showed Dalton's breadth of experience with many instruments, even including work with a new design of theodolite. The final section interpreted the findings of the earlier sections, offering theories and speculations, including one of great ingenuity-proposing that the aurora is of electrical or magnetic origin" (Dictionary of National Biography). First issue: with date (1793) on title page and price of four shillings. London: W. Richardson, J. Phillips, W. Pennington, 1793. Octavo, original boards sympathetically rebacked with paper spine; pages uncut. Complete with subscribers list. Some light occasional browning, small taped closed tear in margin of one leaf (p.73). A rare survival in original boards. Bookseller Inventory # 1286

Item Description: Printed by Harrison and Crosfield for Baldwin and Cradock, Manchester, 1834. Hardcover. Book Condition: Near Fine. 2nd Edition. 8vo (227 x 140 mm). xx, 244, [4] pp., including publisher's advertisements on final [4] pages. Original publisher's boards, printed paper label on spine (joints cracked and weakened, corners bumped). Pages opened but untrimmed. Text crisp and clean. Provenance: AUTHOR'S PRESENTATION COPY inscribed "Dr. Henry with respects from the Author" on front free endpaper, The library of Hugh Selbourne. Fine unsophisticated dedication copy. ---- Wheeler Gift 582; Norman 574 (both for 1st ed.). SECOND EDITION. This work, according to Dalton himself, "contained the germs of most of the ideas afterwards expanded by him into discoveries." (DNB V, 428-34). It contains a series of essays on barometric pressure, storm patterns, temperature, the aurora borealis, among other meteorological matters. Of importance is his observations on evaporation, including his theory that diffusion of water vapor in the atmosphere was not a chemical process. Dalton dedicated this copy to his colleague and close friend, William Henry (1775-1836). Henry is best known for the law named after him which states that the solubility of a gas is directly proportional to the partial pressure of that gas over the solution (Henry's law). Already in 1803, Dalton had formulated that each gas in a mixture of gases exerts a pressure proportionate to the percentage of the gas and independent of the presence of the other gases present (law of partial pressures). That combined into Dalton-Henry law, which says that, in dissolving a mixture of gases, a liquid will absorb as much of each gas in the mixture as if that were the only gas dissolved - a fundamental principle that has become important to dive physiology and medicine nowadays.
