In this fifth volume are Count Rumford’s papers on public institutions: "Poor in Munich"; "Poor in All Countries"; "Feeding the Poor"; "Coffee"; "Public Institutions in Bavaria"; "Regulations for the Army of Bavaria"; "Public Institutions in Great Britain"; and "The Royal Institution." The Collected Works of Count Rumford is much more than a source book or a guide to methods of research in physics. It provides a unique portrait of the scientific, political, and social conditions of the turbulent early years of the Industrial Revolution.
