Selected a Best Bibliography in History for 1991, ALA's RASD It is usually accepted that the contributions of early American science were relatively modest compared with the work of European scientists. Yet the volume of material produced by early American scientific and technical writers is surprisingly large. Limiting her study to books, pamphlets and broadsides, the author has found over 800 works that fall into the broad category of early American scientific and technical literature. This bibliography lists those scientific and technical books, pamphlets, and broadsides published in the US between 1665 and 1799. Entries have been taken from a variety of sources.
