MANUSCRIPT. NUDE RACING.
[c.1824] 10pp ms. in different hands on both sides of 4to leaves, with additional blanks; sl. dusted. Sewn.The first three leaves are on unmarked paper with the first three pages seemingly in an earlier hand. The remaining leaves are watermarked 1824. A fascinating document recording the rather neglected sport of nude racing in the later 18th and early 19th centuries. Although 'nude' or 'naked' is not evident in ink, the record for race number five indicates the bare nature of the racing. Held on December 24th (one may have presumed that this was a summer sport), and raced over 10 miles at Gisburn, Yorkshire, the entry notes that 'the Shephard did not accompany Stump above 3 miles before he gave up. When Stump put on his clothes and ran the remainder of the race at his own ease'. In Bill Smith's book Studmarks on the Summits, 1985, he quotes the following passage in Lancashire Legends, by J. Harland and T.T. Wilkinson, headed 'Foot Races by Nude Men': 'A correspondent in Notes and Queries says: "During the summer of 1824 I remember seeing at Whitworth in Lancashire two races, at different periods, of this description. On one occasion two men ran on Whitworth Moor, with only a small cloth or belt around the loins. On the other occasion the runners were six in number, stark naked, the distance being seven miles, or seven times round the moor. There were hundreds, perhaps thousands, of spectators, men and women, and it did not appear to shock them as being anything out of the ordinary course of things. It is with reference to this usage, no doubt, that the Lancas … [Click Below for Full Description]

Using a towing tank constructed under Bossut's supervision, it was determined that the resistance increases as the relative area of the canal diminishes.

MARMONTEL [JEAN-FRANÇOIS]
Berne & Lausanne Chez La Soci�t� Typographique, 1777. Two vols. 8vo. (7 1/2 x 4 1/2 inches), full contemporary crimson straight grain morocco, with a gilt chain border between two gilt fillets; smooth round spine divided into gilt panels, lavishly decorated. Board edges gilt, inner gilt dentelles; a.e.g. The front board of volume II has been stabbed with a pin or needle several times, only one of which has reached the first few leaves of the book, with no noticeable effect. Bookplate of the Hon. W. Wyndham and the signature of Sophia Bernard on the titles. First published the same year as editions printed in Paris, Liege, and Frankfurt, this edition contains 254 and 310 numbered pages and ten engraved plates (five in each volume) avant la lettre. Jean-Fran�ois Marmontel (1723-99) was a friend and disciple of Voltaire and early in his career the author of some forgotten tragedies, some serious comedies, comic operas, a light comedy, and some slight tales, two mediocre historical romances, B�lisaire, which was condemned by the Sorbonne on account of a chapter on toleration (the censure serving only to render that body ridiculous and to advertise the book), and, in 1777, Les Incas, in which Las Casas figures as defender of the Indians. Marmontel was, moreover, the principal contributor of the literary articles in the Encyclop�die. He was a member from 1763, and later, from 1783, perpetual secretary, of the Acad�mie, succeeding d'Alembert. Les Incas has become a scarce title of late. See: Sabin 44652.

Plain leather bound notebook. 8vo. Manuscript record of lands surveyed in Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania in 1777 (2 1/2 pp. of owners' names and acreage), and in Bedford County, Pennsylvania (35 pp. of owners' names and acreage) between 1785 and 1787.

Nicholson (1757-1800) was a well-known land speculator just after the Revolutionary War. H … [Click Below for Full Description]
