Science in the British Colonies of America

Raymond Phineas Stearns

The new Americas were endlessly exciting to early colonials and to European scientists as well. Raymond P. Stearns here brings together for the first time the full story of American colonial science with all its patrons, contributors, and contributions to the “new science” of the Western world from 1520 to 1770. His comprehensive overview, based on primary sources, provides a new dimension to the cultural history and literature of the American colonies.
