About this Item

New Haven, octavo, xxiv, 479, [1] p., frontispiece, 8 plates (2 colored), and text woodcuts. A Very Good copy in contemporary full calf, with a period gilt-lettered black leather spine label. The covers are sound, with old staining and rubbing; head of backstrip chipped, but label lettering complete. Joints and hinges tender but holding, binding firm. Light scattered foxing in the text, but most pages are fresh, clean and bright. The plates are well preserved, and include a hand-colored geologic map of England, an engraved giant trilobite, and a frontispiece of Niagara Falls. Silliman s supplement occupies pages 389-466. Three inked student signatures dated 1837-1838 on the front endpaper reveal that this book was used at Yale College , likely in Silliman s classes. Curiously, a contemporary owner has replaced and copied pages 81 to 88 in a neat, legible inked manuscript hand, with content identical to the printed pages. This is a solid copy of a classic treatise, with an interesting association. Hazen 1457. BMNH Suppl. 51. Ward and Carozzi 105. Bookseller Inventory # OG5006
