        Astronomia philolaica. Opus novum, in quo motus planetarum per novam ac veram hypothesim demonstrantur.The Inverse-Square Law of Attraction. Paris: Simeonis Piget, 1645.

      First edition, very rare, of "the first treatise after Kepler's <i>Rudolphine Tables</i> to take elliptical orbits as a basis for calculating planetary tables" (The Cambridge Companion to Newton), and the first astronomy work to state that the planetary moving force "should vary inversely as the square of the distance-and not, as Kepler had held, inversely as the first power" (Boyer in DSB). "The <i>Astronomia philolaica</i> represents the most significant treatise between Kepler and Newton and it was praised by Newton in his <i>Principia</i>, particularly for the inverse square hypothesis and its accurate tables." (O'Connor & Robertson, MacTutor History of Mathematics).<br/><br/> Boulliau (1605-94), settled in Paris in 1633, just as the Galilean storm broke. Although a Catholic, he joined his friend Gassendi in support of Galileo and Boulliau soon found himself squarly in the Copernican camp. "In 1645 Boulliau published his most significant scientific work, a more accomplished heliocentric treatise entitled <i>Astronomia philolaica</i>. He had now become one of the very few astronomers to accept the ellipticity of orbits... (DSB). "He claimed that if a planetary moving force existed then it should vary inversely as the square of the distance (Kepler had claimed the first power): <br/><br/> <i>'As for the power by which the Sun seizes or holds the planets, and which, being corporeal, functions in the manner of hands, it is emitted in straight lines throughout the whole extent of the world, and like the species of the Sun, it turns with the body of the Sun; now, seeing that it is corporeal, it becomes weaker and attenuated at a greater distance or interval, and the ratio of its decrease in strength is the same as in the case of light, namely, the duplicate proportion, but inversely, of the distances that is, 1/d<sup>2</sup>.</i><br/><br/> ... There is one aspect of Boulliau's philosophy which is well worth commenting on - namely the fact that he believed in simple explanations and moreover he wanted many different observed properties to result from a single cause. He did not achieve his aim, that would be achieved by Newton, but at least he set the scene for such developments." (O'Connor & Robertson). <br/><br/> Sotheran's I:500 ("This important work according to Newton first mentions the sun's attraction, which decreases in inverse proportion to its distance"); Favaro, Bibliografia Galileiana #205.. Folio (364 x 233 mm), contemporary full calf, raised bands and richly gilt spine (hinges, capitals, and corners with almost invisible leather restoration), pp [1-2] 3-22 [26:part titles]; 469 [1:blank]; 232 [tables], title with some light creasing, old inscriptinon to title, a fine and clean copy. Very rare
