A Synopsis of the Genera of American Plants, According to the Latest Improvements on the Linnean System: With the new Genera of Michaux and others., (Rich, O.)
1 (Rich, O.) A Synopsis of the Genera of American Plants, According to the Latest Improvements on the Linnean System: With the new Genera of Michaux and others.
Georgetown, D.C. Carter, J.M. for J. Milligan and others 1814 First Edition Hardcover Good with no dust jacket 
viii + 167 + [3] pp including ad on [169]. Index. 3/4 leather with hard paper boards. Leather spine just a little rubbed, gilt bright and legible , leather corners a little rubbed, boards a bit rubbed as well with old small name sticker at bottom front. Interior has names of Heydrick family of Philadelphia, 1816 on end papers in a few different hands along with some doodling, more Heydrick family on 2nd fly. Title page and following leaf have light humidity stain, title page recto and verso have small pencil point black spot atop printer's name, page 54 has some small brown spots at the bottom which have oxidized surrounding pages, some general foxing and toning but otherwise clean and unmarked, publisher's ad at [169] is trimmed close at fore-edge and is cut shorter than the rest of the leaves and has quite a bit of foxing and some humidity staining, last two blanks have a bit of the same humidity staining at the gutter. Binding is solid. Quite scarce in commerce, this is a sound and attractive copy. Attributed to O. Rich, who is sometimes identified as Oliver O. Rich and otherwise as Obadiah Rich, the bibliographer whose brother was a botanist. An 1816 articles refers to "publisher O. Rich" while an 1849 article identifies "O. Rich" as the compiler. Library of Congress says that the O. Rich attribution is probably mistakenly applied from a flyleaf inscription. It seems unlikely that the bibliographer Obadiah Rich branched out into botany in the middle of his otherwise unplant-related career. The mystery of the author aside, this is a nice copy of a scarce title. OCLC 82200696; 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall

12 Crean, Patrick B. ; Murty, T. S. ; Stronach, J.a. Mathematical Modelling of Tides and Estuarine Circulation The Coastal Seas of Southern British Columbia and Washington State
Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. K 1988 3540968970 / 9783540968979 Paperback Good with no dust jacket

Orange and green paper card covers have a bent front top corner, some corner wear elsewhere, interior obviously read but clean and nice. Good copy. The increasing exploitation of coastal waters as well as the increasing discharge of domestic and industrial effluents into them underscore the need for a quantitative understanding of the basic circulation of such waters and for a predictive capability for major contingencies likely to occur. This volume considers an extensive complex of waters contained between Vancouver Island and the mainland coasts of British Columbia and the State of Washington, the site of two major ports and a region of intense activity and development. It presents the reader with a broad overview ranging from tidal and estuarine circulation, including the dynamical simulation of a major river plume and influences propagating in from the open boundaries, to the effects of storm surges and tsunamis. ; Xv + 471 pp. References, indexes. Illustrated with maps and charts, photo of Norman Stuart Heaps.
