Descripción:

xii & 525 pages; Eighth edition revised and corrected by the author with large additions and alterations. Contemporary sheepskin leather, spine with five raised bands, dark red label lettered in gilt. The binding is rubbed and worn, with splitting along the hinges (boards still solidly attached by the cords), minor dampstains distributed throughout, but especially to the first and last few leaves. The author, Archibald Patoun (1706-1775) had a long career in the British military, where he became a sub-Director and Major in the Engineers, January 4, 1758. He is mainly known for this useful and detailed text on navigation and surveying which was first published in 1730; his text was printed in this expanded eighth edition in 1770, near the end of the author's life. This copy, despite wear and staining, is complete; it has the folding engraved plate facing page 262 and the astronomical and other figures in the text. But the main point of interest for this copy is its extraordinary provenance in Revolutionary-era Pennsylvania. There is an ownership signature of one "Gulielmus Smith / Ejus Liber/ A D 1782" at the head of the half title. It seems likely that this was the Scottish-born William Smith whose 1753 essay on education attracted the attention of Benjamin Franklin, who invited Smith to teach natural philosophy and logic at the Academy of Philadelphia. In 1755 the Academy was chartered as the College of Philadelphia and Smith was appointed Provost, which position he held until 1779 when the College became the University of the State of Pennsylvania; resumed his position in 1789, when the College was restored. The Rev. Smith's interests in the subject matter of this volume can be demonstrated by his leading part in the Pennsylvania arrangements to observe the eagerly awaited transit of Venus in June, 1769. Smith was a founding member of the American Philosophical Society, and organized its efforts concerning the transit. William Smith was at David Rittenhouse's house at Norriton, 20 miles outside Philadelphia for the fateful day, looking through the best of the three telescopes, and wrote the extensive report of their observations to the Society. In the last decade of his life, Smith, like the next owner, became a land-speculator involved in the development of the then western frontier of Pennsylvania (as the founder of Huntingdon). Below Smith's inscription is the first of three inscriptions by Michael Ross -- (repeated on the title page and the blank verso of the final page of text). The inscription on the title page is arranged neatly in fine handwriting in ink in the blank spaces in both margins and extends to the space below the long list of bookseller/publishers: "Mich'l Ross's / Book given/ to him / by Frederick / Esling October 5th 1783." Frederick Esling (1761-1800) is recorded among the list of inhabitants of the Province of Pennsylvania who took the oath of allegiance to the State Government after the Declaration of Independence; he appears under date of October 12, 1784 - "Frederick Esling, son of Paul Esling, of Philadelphia, a native, come to the age of 21 years." Later Frederick Esling ran away from the ship 'General Green' of the Pennsylvania Navy, August 22, 1799. "This ship was in commission only about six months; great difficulty was experienced in manning her, the men running away." Michael Ross, to whom Esling gave this book, has an even more interesting Pennsylvania history. Ross was born in Scotland on July 12, 1759. He and his mother crossed the Atlantic Ocean in 1772 and landed in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. They became indentured servants to Samuel Wallis, known as the "Land King" of the West Branch Susquehanna River Valley. Wallis had extensive holdings in Muncy Township, and brought Michael Ross and his mother to that place, where Ross was trained as a surveyor's assistant. Samuel Wallis must have been impressed with young Michael Ross as Wallis gave Ross 109 acres of land and a favorable letter of. N° de ref. de la librería
