About this Item

With 15 engraved plates. Contemporary tree calf; the first bland is partially torn at the gutter, otherwise a very nice copy with a presentation bookplate of the Essex Institute, Library of Francis Peabody, from Mrs. Martha Peabody, and the additional bookplate of Arnold Thackray. First edition. Initially prepared at the request of the publishers as a revision of Nicholson's Dictionary, Ure contended that the entire work was newly written as a result of the time between the two publications making the earlier one nearly obsolete. Indeed, he kept the Dictionary up to date by publishing three subsequent editions. The American edition published later in the year of this first edition was quite popular.Ure (1778-1857) was a Scottish chemist and teacher of science to artisans. He was one of the first scientists to earn his living as a consultant. Ure published numerous papers; his most important were on the application of science to the arts and industry.
