First published in 1997, this second edition of this bibliography contains more than half as many entries again as the original selection of 1966. New sections include an annotated list of surviving apparatus and personal effects, an index of letters and printed extracts of letters, and a current plan of Manchester, as well as one of 1793, showing places with Dalton associations. Annotations are relatively more generous and the number of illustrations almost doubled. Manchester Literary and Philosophical Society was central to Daltons life and researches. It inherited almost all his manuscripts and apparatus; much of the collection was destroyed in 1940.


'This bibliography…is the most extensive available for works by and about Dalton' Choice 'This new edition of A. L. Smyth’s work…is painstakingly done and is a monument to Smyth’s dedication…Even though this book is primarily a reference work, its many pictures and its annotations concerning the condition, provenance, and present location of the catalogued items make for captivating browsing. Needless to say, it will withstand the test of time and will well serve anyone who seeks to know more about Dalton and to interpret his place in history.' Isis, Vol. 90, No. 2 'Smyth's bibliography in its original edition was an excellent example of the genre…the new edition is therefore greatly to be welcomed, and makes its predecessor obsolete.' Ambix
