9 Bowdoin, James (A Philosophical Discourse, addressed to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences; to which are added three memoirs on philosophical subjects).
No Place No Publisher no Pamphlet Good 
Publisher, date and place missing, although based on references, this is believed to have been printed by Adams and Nourse: Boston 1786. Disbound pamphlet. Pagination runs 25-71, and is complete within that section, although any preliminaries, preface, title page, and plate are MISSING. A disbound work, consisting of only the three memoirs, and LACKING any text prior to page 25. A work consisting of three memoirs (essays) presenting Bowdoin's thoughts on the properties of light and electricity, as influenced by Dr. (Benjamin) Franklin's observations on light and electrical fluid, as well as light from the sun and stars and a conjecture on how celestial bodies may be preserved from ruin by the law of gravitation. The third memoir, while also examining gravitation as it affects the solar system, contains more theological conjecture than scientific discourse. This whole discourse first appeared in the first volume of Memoirs of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, reprinted here as a separate work. Sabin indicates this was probably printed for private distribution. GOOD condition with minor foxing to the first and last pages. Area of dampstain present at the upper rear corner of the last page near the spine. Minor creasing and toning to the pages. Small tear in the center fore edge of the first page. Remains of spine present along the binding. Page edges rather foxed. Sabin 7017.
