Notes: Includes an account of the eruption of Vesuvius on Oct. 29, 1767 by eyewitness Isaac Jamineau, as well as a history of previous eruptions. Concludes with a poem (in Latin, followed by an English translation) inspired by the volcanoe's eruption of 1631, apparently found on a roadside marker "three miles distant from Naples."
Presumably published early in 1768. Jamineau sent his description of the eruption to Dr. Morgan in 1767, which Morgan read before the American Society, Held at Philadelphia, for Promoting Useful Knowledge, on Feb. 19, 1768. Jamineau was nominated for corresponding membership in the Society at that meeting, and was elected Feb. 26,1768 (an honor of which he was apparently never informed). Cf. Whitfield Jenks Bell. Patriot-improvers, 1997.
Text in three columns.
Description: 1 sheet ([1] p.)
Contents: Includes bibliographical references.
Responsibility: communicated in a letter from the Honourable Isaac Jamineau, Esq.; his Britannic Majesty's consul at Naples, to John Morgan, M.D. F.R.S. and professor of medicine in the College of Philadelphia, member of the American Society, Meeting at Philadelphia, for Promoting Useful Knowledge--published by order of that Society.
