by Ben Champneys( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Three volumes of notes taken from lectures and reading over an extended period of time and bound together at a later date. They are not bound in chronological or subject order and display a variety of foliation and pagination on the formerly independent items. The main subjects are medicine and chemistry, with additional notes on logic, mathematics, and moral philosophy that are probably from Champney's college studies and earlier than the first noted date of 1794. Medical material includes notes from lectures by University of Pennsylvania professors Benjamin Rush, Adam Kuhn, and William Shippen. Reading notes refer to medical and chemical works by William Cullen (1710-1790), John Huxham (1692-1768), Colin Chisholm (1755-1825), Antoine-François de Fourcroy (1755-1809), and Jean-Antoine-Claude Chaptal (1756-1832). Champneys notes that his notes on Chaptal were made on board the frigate Philadelphia in 1800
