Scientific American Magazine, Volumes 4 & 5, year 1861;  52 weekly issues assembled and professionally bound at the close of the pivotal year.


828 pages 9&1/2 x 13&1/2 in marbled boards, richly illustrated by New York-based artists.


As always;  inventions, discoveries, marvels of engineering, incidents and accidents around the globe were reported in these magazines. The 1861 issues were packed with Civil War-related articles, inventions and improvements in all manner of equipment, and the commentary and speculation unfolded week by week.  Among many memorable illustrated items:   A small map dated May 11, sketching the ' seat of war';   eight vital garments and pieces made from rubber , weapons from  cannon, howitzers, and a steam gun to breechloaders and revolvers;   innovative designs by several inventors for camp stoves, tents and seats;  the 'Merrimac'--reported raised and converted to a ram;  the rifling of a cannon;  Hiller's gun lock, and more. Numerous editorials and arguments light the pages from April onward...


More progressive apparatus and higher philosophies than Lincoln's folly prevail.  Our scans include a wonderful tube for mailing parcels, and a new US treasury note, as well as Beardslee's magneto-electric battery. Farm and factory saw improved turbines, windmills, lumber equipment
