9 editions published between 1822 and 1971 in English and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After a brief career at sea, during which he tested Harrison's chronometer for the Board of Longitude, John Robison (1739-1805) became lecturer in chemistry at the University of Glasgow. In 1774, having spent a period teaching mathematics in Russia, he returned to Scotland as professor of natural philosophy at Edinburgh. Despite his busy schedule, he contributed major articles on the sciences to the Encyclopaedia Britannica, giving an overview of contemporary scientific knowledge for the educated layperson. After his death, these and other pieces of his scientific writing were edited by his former pupil David Brewster (1781-1868) and were finally published in four volumes in 1822, with a separate volume of illustrative plates. This reissue incorporates those plates in the relevant volumes of text. Volume 3 reprints Robison's large treatise on astronomy, based on his university lectures, as well as his articles on telescopes and pneumatics

Capital and steam-power: 1750-1800 by John Lord( Book )

1 edition published in 1966 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When it appeared in 1923, John Lord's Capital and Steam Power 1750-1800 was the first book to be based on the voluminous Boultori and Watt papers in Birmingham since the hey-day of Samuel Smiles. Although Lord's conclusions have been modified and corrected on various points, this book still remains the best short account of the significance of this classic engineering partnership which bulks so large in the history of technology and of the Industrial Revolution in Britain. ""Mr. Lord's Capital and Steam Power 1750-1800 is an important contribution to economic history ... His introductory sketch
