Coxe, Eckley B. (Eckley Brinton), 1839-1895
Found in 3 Collections and/or Records:
The material included here consists of five handwritten, bound notebooks, with notes, drawings, computations, etc. on scientific matters. One is partly in German. These notebooks apparently date from his period of study in Germany.
Handwritten lecture notes in French which became the basis for a popular mining engineers field handbook in the late Nineteenth Century. The lectures were given by Professor Louis Edouard Rivot at Ecole Imperiale des Mines in Paris and the notes taken by his student Rothwell. The manuscripts owned by Eckley B. Coxe then donated to Lehigh in 1897.
This nineteenth century manuscript is another item from the Eckley B. Coxe Technical Library. The notebook is written in Old German and deals with the topic of mathematical calculations useful for mining engineering specifically with the use of a sextant as a mine surveying instrument. The notes are from lectures given by a Professor Dr. A. Junge at Freiberg School of Mines in the academic year 1858/59.
