Gravity, Measure of Forces, c1780-c1802

 Item
Identifier: Coll-204/9
Scope and Contents Notes in English, with occasional Russian headings, in basic physics like 'impulsion' and the measurement of forces. There are one or two mechanical sketches.

Impulsion, Corpuscular Forces, c1780-c1802

 Item
Identifier: Coll-204/6
Scope and Contents Volume contains lectures in statics and fluid dynamics. Included is a note on what happens upon mixing particular chemicals. A few of the headings are in Russian.

Lectiones Mechanicae, sive Geometria de Motu, 1684

 Item
Identifier: GB 0237 David Gregory Dc.1.75 Folio B [12]
Scope and Contents Gregory's notes for his public lectures in mechanics, Edinburgh, 1684.

Lecture Notes of John Robison

 Fonds
Identifier: Coll-204
Scope and Contents Lecture notes from the time when Robison was Professor of Natural Philosophy at the University of Edinburgh. The notes embrace the sciences of mechanics, hydrodynamics, astronomy and optics, together with electricity and magnetism.

It is assumed that these are Robison's own notes but this has not been verified.

Lectures in Natural Philosophy, volume 1, 1785

 Item
Identifier: Coll1371/1
Scope and Contents Notes of lectures in Natural Philosophy by Professor Robison taken down by T.C. Hope in 1785.

Lectures in Natural Philosophy, volume 2, 1785

 Item
Identifier: Coll1371/2
Scope and Contents Notes of lectures in Natural Philosophy by Professor Robison taken down by T.C. Hope in 1785.

Lectures in Natural Philosophy, volume 3, 1785

 Item
Identifier: Coll1371/3
Scope and Contents Notes of lectures in Natural Philosophy by Professor Robison taken down by T.C. Hope in 1785.

Libri hactenus desiderati, probably not before 1684

 Item
Identifier: Coll-33/Quarto A [47]
Scope and Contents A short list of partial titles Gregory wished at this moment to acquire. They are about mechanics, mostly, and optics. Thus they may well go with item Coll-33/Quarto A [46], on the reverse, at least generally, apparently part of his Edinburgh lecture notes about the same. In the lower right is a label referring to the reverse side: the document was once folded and stored that way.

Matter, Physics, c1780-c1802

 Item
Identifier: Coll-204/4
Scope and Contents Volume contains lectures on the nature of matter, and on its behaviour in the physical universe.

Mechanics, c1802

 Item
Identifier: Coll-204/3
Scope and Contents Subtitled 'Theory of Machines', pulleys and kites among them, this volume contains lectures on dynamics and statics, with attendant calculations and diagrams.
