For Sale: American Journal of Science 1848-1899 inc

Sun 18th Jun '17

Advert ID: 30066

See all ads from Bob Worsley
A nearly complete run of the American Journal of Science by Silliman. Do a search for the volume indexes, also seem to be able to download all the contents as well, for nothing!

This is scientific publication, the oldest still running in the USA. It concentrates very heavily on minerology but there are many other articles.

Articles by Bell, Michelson & Morley and similar, subjects from hot air engines, Ericsson, singing flames etc. Not really anything about steam engines or civil engineering. A significant fraction of the minerology is of course fossils, this was the great discovery of dinosaurs.

Expect to see about 10% really interesting articles, 10% not so, rest is boring.

I was going to rip them to pieces for the articles, but seemed a waste. Most of the volumes are half leather and still well bound, not dropping to pieces at all. There are seven odd volumes that I bought to finish the run, these are in poor condition, contents fine.

Run goes from vol 55 to 158, two vols per year, each volume has three bi-monthly issues.

Vols missing are 123, 131, 132, 133, 140, 143, 144, 151 and 152.

Search for the AJS and come up with some interesting prices! The complete run, 90 odd volumes, £1000.

They occupy four full book shelves so collection is sensible, will post, guess mainland UK at about £30.
Price: £1,000.00
Collection Only
