Thinkers and Tinkers: Early American Men of Science.
Bedini, Silvio A.

xix, 520, (1) pp. b/w photo plates.
The author devotes much space to early navigation instruments, and to unsung heroes of nautical invention, cartography, and more. This book complements his 1964 volume, “Early American Scientific Instruments and Their Makers.” Very good condition in dust jacket.
