A Treatise on Natural Philosophy in Vindication of Symmes's Theory of the Earth Being a Hollow Sphere

My great find at the Library of Congress this summer, a 24-page pamphlet by one Alexander Mitchell, an Ohio resident who likely heard John C. Symmes present on the topic. What is interesting about this surviving copy is that the author has signed it to James McBride, another Symmes acolyte who wrote widely on the subject.
