Yehoshua Paul mentioned A guide to technical writing from 1908, and others
mentioned other historical examples of technical writing.
When I took a literature of science course as part of mu Scientific Writing
degree program in college, we were required to read and discuss Michael
Faraday's "The Chemical History of a Candle" (1861,
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Chemical_History_of_a_Candle) and the
English translation of Isaac Newton's "Principia Mathematica" (1687,
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Writing_of_Principia_Mathematica) as excellent
examples of scientific or technical writing.
