URE, Andrew.
(1778 - 1857)

(Born: Glasgow, Scotland, 18 May 1778; Died: London, England, 2 January 1857) Scottish physician & chemist.

Ure studied medicine at the University of Glasgow, receiving his degree in 1801. In 1804, he was elected to the Chair of Natural Philosophy in the Andersonian Institution. He became a consulting chemist when he moved to London in 1830. Ure was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1822.

Very scarce. REWORK COMMENTARY: First edition of a rather scarce book. The great interest Ure "took in the application of science to the arts and industry bore fruit in his Dictionary of Chemistry (1821). This work was originally undertaken at the request of the publishers as a revision of William Nicholson's Dictionary of Chemistry, but Ure said that so much of the latter was obsolete that the work had largely to be rewritten." D.S.B., XIII, p. 547. Ure (1778-1857), a pioneer in the teaching of science to artisans, was one of the first scientists to earn his living as a consultant. At the urging of a publisher Ure undertook a revision of Nicholson's Dictionary of Chemistry (2ed 1808), however, so much of the material was out of date, some even for 1808, that Ure had to rewrite most of the work. The Introduction gives a general view of chemistry and a suggested order for the reading of the articles so as to provide a systematic order of study. There were four editions: 2ed 1823, reprinted in 1824; 3rd 1827, repr. 1828; 4th 1831, repr. 1835. The title for the 4th ed became "A Introduction. Aia([l]) A Dictionary of Chemistry. 3Gia([833]) Appendix. on 3H2b(844) imprint as above except 'and' replaces the Following p x are 9 plates, I-VII show apparatus, VIII and IX crystal forms etc. The plates are not signed. Many of the first fruits of Ure's study of industrial processes were incorporated into his Dictionary of Chemistry, of which the first edition appeared in 1821. He had agreed with a publisher to rewrite and bring up to date an earlier dictionary by William Nicholson, who had died in 1815. On beginning the work he found to his surprise (or so he says) that Nicholson's dictionary was so out of date (containing some material going back to Becher's Physica Subterranea!) that the whole book would have to be rewritten. It sold extremely well, and continually grew in size in its several editions (1823, 1824, 1828); it seems to have taken the place of the 'methodical treatise on chemistry' which Ure projected in 1816 (26), and again in the preface to the first edition of the Dictionary, but which never appeared. The book eventually grew into the Dictionary of Arts, Mines, and Manufactures (1839), which ran into seven editions, the last few appearing posthumously by other hands. The various editions include some of the best evidence we have of the actual state of chemical technology at those dates, though they can by no means always be relied on.

Very scarce. REWORK COMMENTARY: This is the first edition of Ure's work on commercial processes and related materials. The author draws on his long experience as a professor of practical science and as a consultant to manufacturers both in Great Britain and abroad to prepare a work useful to manufacturers, metallurgists, merchants, students and the general public. There were seven editions: 2ed 1840; 3rd 1843 and 1846; 4th 1853; 5th 1860; 6th 1867 and 1872; 7th 1875 and 1878.

Very scarce. In today's terminology, this is an encyc,not a dict,& all eds of the work,incl the supps,are org'd alphabetically. The early eds of the work,done entirely by Ure himself, came out in quick succession, in 1839, 1840,& 1843. The 1st 2 vols of the present set are the Am.ed of the 3rd Lond (Corrected) ed.(1843).After Ure's death, the Lond. ed was brought up to date in 3 vols.The 3rd vol of present set,the large Am. Suppl of 1864(almost 1100 pps & w 700 wood engrvs)was taken,not from a British suppl,of which no current ed existed, but from the latest (5th) Brit ed of the Dict itself, ed.by R.Hunt,& pub. in 1863. The specific virtue of the present set of 3 vols,thus,is that it combines Ure's early work in it's preferred ed(3rd Lond,Corr.)on the industrial & related processes of the 1st 3rd of the 19th Cent, w. a parallel work on those same & additional processes as they existed an epochal quarter century later; & because of the alphabetical plan of the vols, the processes of both periods are easily compared,their history made manifest. A fascinating & rewarding work,esp.in this combination. Vols rebnd in matching cloth, conservatively & attractively, brown w gold print, & double gilt rules. Bndngs About Fine. A handsome set.The 1845 vols w. foxing to varying degrees,most fairly pale, not affecting legibility. Supp has no foxing.

Very scarce. REWORK COMMENTARY: The first American edition of the Dictionary of Arts, ... seems to be New York, 1842 (from the 1840 London edition). There were numerous other editions and reprints including 1843 (3rd), -44, -45 (from the London 1843), other "11th" edition reprints (?) -48,-50,-51. These and at least 13 other New York (or New York-Philadelphia) "editions" from 1852 to 1878 are listed by NUC which adds a Boston 4th ed. 1853. Supplements appeared from at least 1844 until 1881. The Dictionary was, with each London edition, being constantly enlarged and corrected, with recent improvements and new processes being incorporated in the Supplements. Bolton (1899) 21 lists only the New York 1850 edition. Szabadvary.F. (1966) 235-236, relates Ure's method for preparing standardized ("normal") solutions of sulphuric acid and ammonia. The translator has confused the order for diluting the acid; dilute acid should be added to the distilled water. See the Supplement 1847 Alkalimetry pp 289-291, especially 291. Szabadvary states Ure's is the earliest reference he has found to "normal" solutions (no date given for the Supplement used).

Very scarce. Robert Hunt (1807-1887) edited this first of the posthumous editions of Ure's Dictionary of Arts, ... In the Preface Hunt states that so much new material has been added that it is a "new publication." The editor's aim was to provide a reliable work of reference giving exact details of manufacture and including enough science to make the "philosophy of manufacture at once intelligible." Handicrafts were omitted from this edition for the most part. Bolton (1893) 80 Ferchl 252 under Hunt lists the 1860 edition and the 7th 1875. Partington III 722 n.ll mistakenly gives the editor as E. Hunt.
