        Introductio in analysin infinitorum.Lausanne: Marcus-Michaelis Bousquet & Socii, 1748.

      First edition, and a really remarkable copy in original state (the Norman copy), of Euler's great textbook on analysis. This is the only work of Euler listed in <i>Printing and the Mind of Man</i>. "In his 'Introduction to Analysis' Euler did for modern analysis what Euclid had done for ancient geometry" (PMM). The editors of Euler's collected works emphasize that the <i>Introductio</i> work "still today deserves to be not only read, but studied with devotion. No mathematician will put it aside without immense benefit," and that the <i>Introductio</i> "marks the beginning of a new epoch and that this work has become influential for the whole development of the mathematical science by virtue of not only its content, but also its language." Extremely rare in this condition. <br/><br/> PMM 196; Norman 732 (this copy); Landmark Writing in Western Mathematics 13.<br/><br/> "Leonhard Euler (1707-83), the great Swiss mathematician, was born at Basel where he became the pupil of Johann Bernoulli, whose sons persuaded Catherine the Great to invite him to St. Petersburg. In 1747 he was invited by Frederick the Great to Berlin. In 1766 he became blind, but this did not interfere with his colossal output of work. Altogether he produced thirty-two books in Latin, German and French, and approximately nine hundred memoirs (making him the most productive mathematician who ever lived). He covered practically the entire field of pure and applied mathematics, but some of his best and most enduring work was done in analysis, which he established as an independent science. <br/><br/> "In his 'Introduction to Analysis' Euler did for modern analysis what Euclid had done for ancient geometry. It contains an exposition of algebra, trigonometry and analytical geometry, both plane and solid, a definition of logarithms as exponents, and important contributions to the theory of equations. He evolved the modern exponential treatment of logarithms, including the fact that each number has an infinity of natural logarithms. In the early chapters there appears for the first time the definition of mathematical function, one of the fundamental concepts of modern mathematics. From Euler's time mathematics and physics tended to be treated algebraically, and many of his principles are still used in teaching mathematics" (PMM). <br/><br/> "The topics in the <i>Introductio</i> include: the definition of a function and the distinction between single-valued and many-valued 'functions', or odd and even functions. There are questions of polynomial factorization related to the Fundamental Theorem of Algebra; substitutions, infinite series, exponentials and logarithms, and expansions into partial fractions; multiple angle formulas; evaluations of <i>ζ(2k)</i>, for <i>k</i> a positive integer (the famous so-called Basel problem); infinite series-infinite product formulas; and partitions of integers. Much of the latter part of volume 1 is devoted to generating functions and continued fractions. Volume 2 is largely concerned with classification of curves and the study of the conics, and higher degree curves and surfaces. D. J. Struik referred to it as the first textbook in analytic geometry (<i>A concise history of mathematics</i> (1948), p. 168)... <br/><br/> "Beyond the beautiful mathematics contained in the book, however, there is the beauty of the original edition of this set of volumes as physical objects. Most of Euler's books were published by the press of the Academy in St. Petersburg. Those are rather sober, straightforward products of the printer's art. When Euler wrote the <i>Introductio</i>-probably around 1745-he was working in Berlin. Unfortunately the Berlin Academy published journals but not books, and the St. Petersburg Academy was having financial problems. So Euler had to look for a publisher elsewhere. In 1744 his <i>Methodus inveniendi lineas curvas</i> had been published by the firm of Marc-Michel Bousquet, located in Lausanne and Geneva. So he approached them about publishing the <i>Introductio</i>. This firm had also published in 1742 a beautifully decorated set of four volumes, the <i>Opera Omnia</i> of Jean Bernoulli. Handsome though these earlier volumes were, fortunately for us, the publisher seems to have given this set of two volumes an even more generous budget, so the book is decorated with an elegant engraving for a frontispiece, a title page in two colors, a fold-out, engraved dedication portrait of the physicist-astronomer-geologist Jean Jacques Dortous de Mairan, who was a patron of the publisher, secretary of the Académie Royale des Sciences and member of various other scientific societies" (G. J. Alexanderson, 'Euler's <i>Introductio in analysis infinitorum</i>,' Bull. Amer. Math. Soc. 44 (2007), p. 636). <br/><br/>. 2 vols. 4to (265 x 212 mm), pp [vi], iii-xvi, [3] 4-320, folding printed table after p.224; [iv] [3] 4-398 [2], titles printed in red and black with engraved title vignette, engraved frontispiece by Soubeyran after De la Monce, engraved folding portrait of dedicatee Jean Jacques Dortous de Mairan (1678-1771) by Etienne Frequet (1719-94) after J. Tocquet, and 40 folding engraved plates. Original boards, uncut (light browning and staining to a few gatherings), bookplate of Haskell F. Norman on front pastedown of vol. 1

        Universal Arithmetick: or, a Treatise of Arithmetical Composition and Resolution. To which is added, Dr. Halley's Method of finding the Roots of Aequations Arithmetically. Translated from the Latin by the late Mr. Raphson, and revised and corrected by Mr. Cunn.London: J. Senex et al., 1720.

      First edition in English, the second overall after the first (Latin) edition (1707), of Newton's treatise on algebra, or 'universal arithmetic,' his "most often read and republished mathematical work" (Whiteside). "Included are 'Newton's identities' providing expressions for the sums of the <i>i</i>th powers of the roots of any polynomial equation, for any integer <i>i</i>, plus a rule providing an upper bound for the positive roots of a polynomial, and a generalization, to imaginary roots, of René Descartes' Rule of Signs" (Parkinson, p. 138). About this last rule for determining the number of imaginary roots of a polynomial (which Newton offered without proof), Gjertsen (p. 35) notes: "Some idea of its originality ... can be gathered from the fact that it was not until 1865 that the rule was derived in a rigorous manner by James Sylvester." The tract by Halley on 'A new, accurate and easy method for finding the roots of any equations generally, without prior reduction' (pp. 259-272) had also been appended to the first Latin edition.<br/><br/> "In fulfillment of his obligations as Lucasian Professor, Newton first lectured on algebra in 1672 and seems to have continued until 1683. Although the manuscript of the lectures in [Cambridge University Library] carries marginal dates from October 1673 to 1683, it should not be assumed that the lectures were ever delivered. There are no contemporary accounts of them and, apart from Cotes who made a transcript of them in 1702, they seem to have been totally ignored. Whiteside (<i>Papers</i> V, p. 5) believes that they were composed 'over a period of but a few months' during the winter of 1683-4" (Gjertsen, pp. 33-4). In preparing the lectures Newton took the opportunity not only to extend Cartesian algebraic methods, but also to restore the geometrical analysis of the ancients, giving his lectures on algebra a strongly geometric flavor. Although the <i>Arithmetica</i> initially made little impact in Britain, on the Continent the reception accorded the lectures was more positive. "Leibniz, unhesitatingly divining their author beneath the cloak of anonymity, gave them a long review in the <i>Acta Eruditorum</i> of Leipzig in 1708. Written thirty years before, he noted, and now deservingly printed by William Whiston, he assured the reader that 'you will find in this little book certain particularities that you will seek in vain in great tomes on analysis.' His close associate, Johann Bernoulli, despite some adverse remarks paid Newton the compliment in 1728 of basing his own course on the elements of algebra upon Newton's text" (Hall, p. 174). <br/><br/> Little is known of the life of the translator Joseph Raphson: he was elected FRS in December 1689, having been proposed by Halley on the basis of his most important work <i>Analysis aequationum</i> (1690), which contains his independent discovery of what is now known as the Newton-Raphson method (or sometimes, unjustly, 'Newton's method') for the approximate numerical solution of equations. Newton had developed the method in his tract 'The method of fluxions,' composed in 1671 but not published until 1736, but Raphson's version is simpler and is the one widely used today. The nature and extent of Raphson's relationship with Newton remains unclear. According to Copenhaver, "Raphson was one of the few people whom Newton allowed to see his mathematical papers. As early as 1691, he and Edmund Halley were involved in plans to publish Newton's work of the early 1670's on quadrature of curves, a project fulfilled only in 1704, and then in a much different form. In 1711, Roger Cotes and William Jones arranged for Raphson to see some of Newton's papers '... pertinent to his design of writing an History of the Method of Fluxions'." Raphson did indeed write his <i>History of Fluxions</i>, the first history of the subject, but it did not appear until 1715, after Raphson had died (probably in 1712 - see Thomas & Smith, p. 158-9). It is unclear how pleased Newton was with this work despite its clear position in favour of Newton's claims to priority over those of Leibniz, and he probably delayed its publication. Certain letters which had passed between Newton and Leibniz were appended to copies of the first edition soon after its initial appearance, causing a dispute with Johann Bernoulli to erupt. Newton later admitted to Varignon that he had been responsible for the addition of the letters. <br/><br/> ESTC T18582; Babson 201; D. Gjertsen, <i>Newton Handbook</i>, 1986; A. R.

Initially he combined a career in finance with one in science, translating important works by Hales and Newton into French. In 1739 Buffon became director of the Jardin du Roi, later the Jardin des Plantes, and the Histoire naturelle may have originated as a description of the royal collection. It appeared from 1749 to 1804 and eventually comprised 44 volumes. Buffon was assisted among others by the anatomist Louis Daubenton, and the final volumes were completed after his death under the direction of Comte de Lacépède.From the Stedelijk Gymnasium Bibliotheek, with its stamp on title-pages and a few flyleaves.

        Statuta Seu Decreta Synodalia Bisuntinae Dioecesis Publicata ab Anno 1480 Ad Annum 1707

      1707. Vesantione [i.e. Besançon], 1707. Titlepage, 14,(viii),441,(xliii)pp. 16mo. Contemporary full calf, spine goldtooled. Corners rubbed. First flyleaf loosening, browned throughout and (water)stain on last flyleaf. François-Joseph de Grammont was Archbishop of Besançon from 1698 to 1717. The present work contains the statutes of the diocesan synod convoced by him in his capacity as Archbishop. At a synod the decrees determined upon by the (arch)bishop are promulgated and a period of two months is allowed for having recourse against them to the bishop or the Holy See. All the clergy and laity of the diocese are bound by these decrees, and it is not necessary for the bishop to send his statutes to Rome for revision before publication. Pages 336 to 348 specifically deal with books and in the "mandemant" in the introductory material the archbishop explains why he forbids certain books in his diocese. He states: "Nous avons apris avec douleur que des Villes heretiques qui nous sont voisines, se répandoit dans cette Province le pernicieux Dictionnaire de Bayle.... Nous défendons sous les peines de Droit à tous les Fidéles de ce Diocese de lire ou retenir, & à tous Imprimeurs et Libraires de vendre & débiter aucuns desdits Livres..."

        Strabonis rerum Geographicarum Libri XVII

      Amsterdam: Joannes Wolters, 1707. Folio, with a fine engraved title-page, parallel text in Greek and Latin in double columns; small blind-embossed library stamp on preliminaries; a handsome copy in contemporary vellum, a little wear to hinges which are strong; spine decorated in gilt between raised bands, leather label, covers ornately gilt with complex central emblematic device. The best edition of the text. The best edition of Strabo&#39;s enormous Geography, his kolossourgia or colossal work as he described it himself. The influential Greek geographer who travelled widely, studied under both Aristotelian and Stoic teachers, and spent some decades in Rome, wrote his work early in the first century. Along with the less-known geographers Aratus and Geminus, Strabo promulgated the idea that the torrid zone of the spherical globe was occupied throughout its length by an ocean which divided his continent from another antipodal one in the southern hemisphere. This edition is based on the critical edition by the great classical scholar Casaubon, here further edited with the addition of extensive notes from the best commentators, and with the addition of text that had been omitted from the sources available to Casaubon. &#39;The annotations of preceding learned men are arranged with skill in their respective places, by the care and diligence of [this edition&#39;s editor] Almeloveen&#39; (Dibdin). The "Geographies" of Strabo were &#39;by far the most important source for ancient geography, a priceless document of the Augustan age, and a compendium of important material derived from lost authors&#39; (OCD). The work represents the classical world&#39;s most significant contribution to the science of geography. The first surviving attempt to collect all geographical knowledge that existed and to compose a general treatise on the subject, it was mainly based on ancient Greek sources. It survived in various manuscripts into the age of printing; however earlier printed editions of the text, including the Aldine edition of 1516, were based on corrupt manuscripts and it was not until 1587 that Casaubon improved the text for this edition, revising it again in 1620. Casaubon&#39;s edition of Strabo remained the basis of all subsequent editions until the nineteenth century. For a very full modern analysis of the work see Daniela Dueck, Hugh Lindsay and Sarah Pothecary, Strabo&#39;s cultural geography: the making of a kolossourgia (Cambridge, 2005).

        A Voyage Round the World. Containing an Account of Captain Dampier&#39;s Expedition into the South-Seas in the ship St. George, In the Years 1703 and 1704

      London: James Knapton, 1707. Octavo, five folding maps & 10 plates; mild browning of the title-page and dedication, edges a little spotted; very good in neat later polished calf with gilt bands and red morocco label, joints rubbed, bookplate. Funnell on Dampier. A nice copy of the work which almost ruined Dampier&#39;s already shaky reputation, Funnell&#39;s highly critical account of the 1703-4 South Seas voyage of the St. George. It was during this voyage that Alexander Selkirk, the prototype of Defoe&#39;s Robinson Crusoe, was marooned on Juan Fernandez. The cruise of the St. George and the Cinque Ports (Captain Stradling) was a South Seas voyage designed to harass the Spanish, but it failed because of conflict on board the vessels, including a falling-out between the mate Funnell and Dampier. When the former returned to England first, he seized the opportunity to rush into print with this highly unflattering account of his former captain. Dampier, in turn, would publish a vindication of his conduct, and would have been infuriated when the publisher Knapton later included this highly critical work in the collected edition of Dampier in 1729. Funnell joined Dampier&#39;s third privateering expedition as mate of the St. George which sailed for the Canary Islands, Brazil and the South Seas in April 1703. The St. George was joined by the Cinque Ports and both ships started looting the South American Coast from the Juan Fernandez Islands in January 1704. They experienced mixed success and the crews grew rebellious in the face of dwindling food supplies. Funnell&#39;s account is highly critical of Dampier, and charges him with being routinely drunk, using foul and abusive language, oppressing his crew, and gross cowardice. The antagonism between Funnell and Dampier was exacerbated when they took the Spanish galleon Asuncion as a prize. With limited time available, Dampier ordered the food stores moved to the St. George and forbade Funnell to search the Asuncion for hidden gold. Ultimately both the St. George and Cinque Ports were declared unseaworthy and abandoned in late 1704. The expedition split, with Funnell and other disgruntled sailors taking a small Spanish prize to Amboina in the Dutch East Indies.

        Arithmetica Universalis: sive De Compositione et Resolutione Arithmetica Liber. Cui accessit Halleiana Aequationum Radices Arithmetice inveniendi methodus. In Usum Juventutis Academicae

      4 p.l., 343 pp. 8vo, fine antique panelled calf (faint & unimportant dampstaining in gutter to first & final few leaves), spine gilt, red morocco lettering piece on spine. Cambridge: Typis Academicis; London: B. Tooke, 1707. First edition of what I believe to be the scarcest of all of Newton&#39;s books on the market. This was, in the 18th century, the most popular mathematical work by Newton, being reprinted a number of times both on the Continent and in England. Newton compiled the Universal Arithmetic in a "cavalier fashion by plundering the papers connected with his Observations on Kinckhuysen early in the 1670s. Since things Newton touched had a way of turning to gold, the work did not merely summarize algebra but advanced the science -- in its analysis of imaginary roots, for example. Leibniz reviewed the published work anonymously in the Acta eruditorum in highly laudatory terms [in 1708]."-Westfall, Never at Rest. A Biography of Isaac Newton, p. 398. Newton&#39;s disciple and successor in the Lucasian chair at Cambridge, William Whiston, edited and published the present work. The book also contains Halley&#39;s "Method of finding Roots of Equations Arithmetically," which was originally published in the Philosophical Transactions of 1694. This is the first time I have handled this book. Over the years, I have had, with the exception of this book, all of Newton&#39;s printed publications. This book is truly uncommon. Very good copy. Stamp on title of Stonyhurst College. &#10087; Babson 199. .

      NELLA STAMPERIA DI ANTONIO DE' ROSSI 1707 In 4°, pp. 48 cc.nn., 284, 20 cc.nn. Di indice. Legatura coeva in piena pergamena; tassello al dorso in marocchino rosso, con titolo e nome dell'autore in oro. Edizione curata della celebre opera di Anneo Lucano, poeta latino intimo amico di Nerone, nei primi anni della sua formazone culturale e successivamente acceso sostenitore della repubblica. Tutta la produzione di questo autore, è andata distrutta, escluso la Farsaglia, che ci è giunta non terinata, in dieci libri. Questo poema, sulla guerra civile tra Cesare e Pompeo, è considerato "Il poema dell'opposizione stoica" contro la monarchia; non a caso la figura più riuscita è quella di Catone, modello di virtù ed espressione tipica di un nuovo gusto anticlassico. Interessante edizione tra le prime in lingua volgare. Bello e fresco esemplare in ottimo stato di conservazione. Brunet: V.III, 1203.
