The first scientific American : Benjamin Franklin and the pursuit of genius by Joyce E Chaplin( Book )

7 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,092 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this biography of America's most brilliant and cosmopolitan Founding Father, Joyce Chaplin considers all of Franklin's work in the sciences. Franklin was the first American whose "genius" for science qualified him as a genius in political affairs. It is only through grasping Franklin's full engagement with the sciences that we can understand this great Founder and the world he shaped."--Jacket
Round about the Earth : circumnavigation from Magellan to orbit by Joyce E Chaplin( Book )

7 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 930 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this first full history of around-the-world travel, Joyce E. Chaplin brilliantly tells the story of circumnavigation."
A new world : England's first view of America by Kim Sloan( Book )

8 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 884 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book reproduces in full the celebrated but rarely seen British Museum collections of watercolours made by this relatively unknown gentleman-artist. It also tells the story of his five voyages to 'Virginia' and his role as Governor of the 'Lost Colony' of Roanoke, which preceded Captain John Smith's more successful settlement at Jamestown twenty years later." "White's watercolours bring to life the complex and sophisticated culture of the coastal Carolina Algonquians. All his known work is reproduced here - maps and charts, watercolours of Florida Indians, West Indian flora and fauna, the Inuit encountered by Martin Frobisher, and an amazing and influential set of watercolours of Picts and ancient Britons. Each one is reproduced in colour opposite its historical explanation, supplemented by the famous de Bry engravings, which were responsible for spreading his images throughout Europe, as well as other comparable works by contemporary and later artists including Mark Catesby, the eighteenth-century natural historian."--Jacket
Subject matter : technology, the body, and science on the Anglo-American frontier, 1500-1676 by Joyce E Chaplin( Book )

17 editions published between 2001 and 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 611 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With this reinterpretation of early cultural encounters between the English and American natives, Joyce E. Chaplin thoroughly alters our historical view of the origins of English presumptions of racial superiority, and of the role science and technology played in shaping these notions. By placing the history of science and medicine at the very center of the story of early English colonization, Chaplin shows how contemporary European theories of nature and science dramatically influenced relations between the English and Indians within the formation of the British Empire."--Jacket
An anxious pursuit : agricultural innovation and modernity in the lower South, 1730-1815 by Joyce E Chaplin( Book )

9 editions published between 1993 and 1996 in English and held by 508 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Using public records as well as planters' and farmers' private papers, Chaplin examines innovations in rice, indigo, and cotton cultivation as a window through which to see planters' pursuit of a modern future. She demonstrates that planters actively sought to improve their society and economy even as they suffered a pervasive anxiety about the corrupting impact of progress and commerce. The basis for their accomplishments and the root of their anxieties, according to Chaplin, were the same: race-based chattel slavery. Slaves provided the labor necessary to attain planters' vision of the modern, but the institution ultimately limited the Lower South's ability to compete in the contemporary world
Benjamin Franklin's autobiography : an authoritative text, backgrounds, criticism by Benjamin Franklin( Book )

5 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in English and held by 278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The only edition of the celebrated Autobiography that includes the long-missing and recently identified "Wagon Letters." Written during the most eventful years of Benjamin Franklin's life (1771-90), the Autobiography is one of the most influential memoirs in history. This newly edited Norton Critical Edition includes an introduction that explains the history of the Autobiography within the larger history of the life-writing genre as well as within the history of celebrity. The text is accompanied by new and expanded explanatory annotations and by a map, an illustration, and six facsimiles. "Contexts" presents a broader view of Franklin's life with a journal entry from a 1726 voyage, correspondence, a Poor Richard piece on ambition and fame, Franklin's views on self-improvement, and his last will (and codicil). "Criticism" draws on a wealth of material that reflects both the wide range of Franklin's achievements and the global impact of his life and memoirs. New international voices in "Contemporary Opinions" include Immanuel Kant, Honoré Gabriel Riqueti, Comte de Mirabeau, José Antonio de Alzate y Ramírez, and José Francisco Correia da Serra. "Nineteenth-Century Opinions" includes Humphry Davy on Franklin's discovery of electricity as well as Empress Shōken of Japan's Franklin-inspired poem. Finally, "Modern Opinions" reprints important pieces: I.B. Cohen on Franklin and the Autobiography's importance to science; Michael Warner's theoretical interpretation of the practices of writing and printing and what they tell us about Franklin; and Peter Stallybrass's insightful and engaging history-of-the-book perspective on Franklin's writing generally and the Autobiography specifically."--Publisher's website
Food in time and place : the American Historical Association companion to food history by Paul Freedman( Book )

10 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Food and cuisine are important subjects for historians across many areas of study. Food is after all one of the most basic human needs and a foundational part of social and cultural histories. Such topics as famines, food supply, nutrition, and public health are addressed by historians throughout every era and spanning every nation. Food in Time and Place delivers an unprecedented review of the state of historical research on food, endorsed by the American Historical Association, providing readers with geographically, chronologically, and topically broad understanding of food cultures--from ancient Mediterranean and medieval societies to France and its domination of haute cuisine. Teachers, students, and scholars in food history will appreciate coverage of different thematic concerns, such as transfers of crops, conquest, colonization, immigration, and modern forms of globalization."
The new worlds of Thomas Robert Malthus : rereading the Principle of population by Alison Bashford( Book )

11 editions published between 2012 and 2016 in English and Italian and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a sweeping global and intellectual history that radically recasts our understanding of Malthus's Essay on the Principle of Population, the most famous book on population ever written or ever likely to be. Malthus's Essay is also persistently misunderstood. First published anonymously in 1798, the Essay systematically argues that population growth tends to outpace its means of subsistence unless kept in check by factors such as disease, famine, or war, or else by lowering the birth rate through such means as sexual abstinence. Challenging the widely held notion that Malthus's Essay was a product of the British and European context in which it was written, Alison Bashford and Joyce Chaplin demonstrate that it was the new world, as well as the old, that fundamentally shaped Malthus's ideas
Genealogies of genius by Joyce E Chaplin( Book )

9 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The essays in this volume examine the uses to which concepts of genius have been put in different cultures and times. Collectively, they make two new statements. First, seen in historical and comparative perspective, genius is not a natural fact and universal human constant that has only recently been identified by modern science, but instead a categorical mode of assessing human ability and merit. Second, as a concept with specific definitions and resonances, genius has performed specific cultural work within each of the societies in which it had a historical presence. -- from back cover
Round about the earth : circumnavigation from Magellan to orbit by Joyce E Chaplin( Recording )

13 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For almost five hundred years, human beings have been finding ways to circle the Earth-- by sail, steam, or liquid fuel; by cycling, driving, flying, going into orbit, even by using their own bodily power. Chaplin shows how the desire to take on the planet has tested the courage and capacity of the bold men and women who took up the challenge. Their exploits show us why we think of the Earth as home
