MATHEMATICAL AND PHILOSOPHICAL LECTURES, ...
[Prospectus]
Mathematical and philosophical lectures, by Mr. Dowling, at his establishment, No. 23, Devonshire Street, Queen Square. ... The lectures commence on the 10th of September, and they will be continued on Tuesday and friday evenings, during the winter season. ...
London: E. Blackader, printer, [1813?].
[4] p. ; 25.5 cm. (4°)

Folded half-sheet, verso and conjugate leaf blank. Drop-head title. 'Mr. Dowling performs all the Problems, and demonstrates them with a piece of Chalk on a board painted black, and made for that purpose; and the rapid improvement that his Pupils have made since he has adopted this mode of instruction, is the strongest proof he can offer in favor of it'. Mr. Dowling is untraced; possibly to be identified with a Dr. Daniel Dowling who held a school in Highgate in 1810 (removed later to Hammersmith) and published on the subject. The date of publication of the present prospectus is suggested by presuming that the first lecture was delivered on Friday 10 September (i.e. in 1813); the printing firm of 'E. Blackader' was active between 1806 and 1814. Soane moved from 12 to 13 Lincoln's Inn Fields (see copy note) in 1813, first dining in the new Study on 11 October.

Copy Notes Previously folded as a letter addressed in ink John Stone [sic] Esqr / 12 Lincoln's inn Fields.

Binding Folded paper.
