Original volume disbound, with both boards. Clarke (1769-1822) went through Jesus College, Cambridge, without attracting much attention. However, on finishing there he took up the practice of accompanying wealthy students on European tours, collecting trinkets and art as they went. Later, he donated several items to his alma mater. Returning to Cambridge, he became its first Professor of Mineralogy. He experimented with melting metal by means of blow-pipes, and is credited with the first self-lighting match. Deckled edges front and foot. 528 pp.
