Technology, MUSEUM AMERICAN MECHANICS' MAGAZINE, 1826 ., 1825-January 21, JOURNAL AND GAZETTE. August 6, REGISTER, Thomas P. Jones, numbers 1 [i e. 27]-44 Volume II.

New York: Published by C. S. Williams, 1825-1826. Octavo, 18 numbers (299 pages), profusely illustrated, disbound. The whole of the second and last volume, with two leaves of preliminary matter, including a title leaf and a preface to the second volume. The final issue includes an index (pages 294-299). The general added title, dated 1826, reads: "AMERICAN MECHANICS' MAGAZINE, CONTAINING USEFUL ORIGINAL MATTER ON SUBJECTS CONNECTED WITH MANUFACTURES, THE ARTS AND SCIENCES, AS WELL AS SELECTIONS FROM THE MOST APPROVED DOMESTIC AND FOREIGN JOURNALS. Conducted by Associated Mechanics. Volume II." The prospectus for THE FRANKLIN JOURNAL AND AMERICAN MECHANICS' MAGAZINE to be appended is not present. This weekly magazine, edited by Thomas P. Jones (1774-1848), merged with the FRANKLIN JOURNAL (JOURNAL OF THE FRANKLIN INSTITUTE), "a most valuable repository of information concerning scientific (and especially engineering) subjects" (Mott), in 1826, shortly after Jones was appointed professor of mechanics and natural philosophy by the Franklin Institute in December 1825. See DAB and Mott I, pp. 556-8. A fascinating source of information compiled during America's first golden age of invention and mechanical engineering with wonderful illustrations. A Franklin Institute Library duplicate with their small embossed stamp on the title leaf. Some insect tracking to the surface of the two preliminary leaves, last two leaves detached, but overall, the contents are in very good condition. (#154844).
