Spines with gilt ornaments, green morocco label with gilt title, and small round, gilt-bordered red morocco label with gilt volume number.l New, improved edition by the author, of his work on gasses. The British theologist, philosophist, educator, political activist and chemist Joseph Priestley (1733-1804) is claimed to be the first to discover oxygen. He also discovered various other gasses, and accidently invented the eraser. This is more or less the "final" edition of his work on gasses. An earlier edition was published in 1774-1777, but this later edition contains newer information, carefully selected by the author. The nine large, folded plates show the scientific equipment used, and partly designed or improved by Priestley himself. Some scattered spotting, otherwise a well-preserved set. Horblit 85; PMM 217 (both for the first edition)..
