Fossils arranged according to the obvious characters printed in London in 1771 by R. Baldwin and P. Elmsly is an early compilation of the different characteristic of minerals.  John Hill (1714-1775) arranges the minerals in tables by form, hardness, weight, surface, color, and other qualities.  Hill was one of the first people to begin producing books on minerals and fossils, but his interest in natural history and science was by no means limited.  He wrote on a wide variety of topics such as gardening, plants, insects, gout, and nervous disorders.  Hill wrote not only scientific works, but also treatises on acting, marriage, and contemporary events.  His opinions on the kidnapping of Elizabeth Canning, a servant girl, led to a prolonged dispute through pamphlets with Henry Fielding.

I particularly like how this book was set and printed.  The landscape orientation of the tables really drew me in.  And a note for the binder is always fascinating too!

Pickwick Book Shop in Nyack, New York. Messy, cluttered, cozy, literary heaven.

"At Pickwick Book Shop, there isn’t a search button. There’s Jack Dunnigan, who has been behind the counter since 1975. If he doesn’t have it for you, he’ll get the book. But the search and study Jack will give you reflects a depth of knowledge and wisdom that no search engine could ever match."
