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, and the
English translation of Isaac Newton's "Principia Mathematica" (1687, as excellent
examples of scientific or technical writing.
