AN ESSAY ON MATTER. In Five Chapters.

Tissue at front and back is toned, torn, missing pieces, lower margins closely cropped and unevenly trimmed (date barely visible on title page), foxed else good/very good. Pencil notes on half title: "1st American Book on Motion Gravitation," "Motion and Matter," "see p. 7," "by Isaac Ledyard 1784," most likely notes from a descendant as this title was acquired from the Ledyard family. Plus, there's a partial piece of stationery loose with the name of Henry Ledyard on which he wrote the title of the book. Isaac Ledyard, 1755-1803, was a surgeon in the Continental Army and later the health office for the Pork of New York. Extremely scarce. FIRST EDITION.
