        Principia mathematica. Second Amsterdam edition

      Amsterdam: Sumptibus Societatis, 1723. No Dust Jacket. Newton, Isaac (1642-1727). Philosophiae naturalis principia mathematica. 4to. [28], 484, [20], 107pp. 3 folding engraved plates. Amsterdam: sumptibus Societatis, 1723. 235 x 182 mm. Modern crushed morocco, gilt-lettered spine. Minor marginal worming, light dampstaining on several leaves, but very good. Second Amsterdam edition. Three authorized editions of Newton's Principia mathematica were issued during his lifetime, but demand for the work was so great on the Continent that two unauthorized reprints were also published in Amsterdam in 1714 and 1723. "These Amsterdam reprints were a major undertaking, requiring the cutting of new wood-blocks for the figures and a new setting of type. The second reprint (1723) contains not only four tracts by Newton and W. Jones's 'Praefatio Editoris,' but also extracts from four letters of Newton's. These tracts are: De analysi per aequationes infinitas (first published by Jones in 1711), De quadratura curvarum and Enumeratio linearum tertii ordinis (published with the Opticks in 1704 and the Optice in 1706, but eliminated from the second English edition of the Opticks in 1717/18), and the Methodus differentialis. But this whole collection-the four tracts, the extracts from Newton's letters, and Jones's Praefatio-was merely a reprint, without alteration, of a collection that was first published as a small book in London in 1711. It was reissued separately in Amsterdam in 1723 as well as being included as a supplement to the reprint of the Principia. How curious indeed that Newton's long-cherished plan of publishing De quadratura together with the Principia should have been realized only in this presumably unauthorized Amsterdam reprint of 1723!" (Cohen, Introduction to Newton's Principia, p. 257). Babson (second supplement) 004.

        Historiae Naturalis Libri XVII quos interpretatione et notis illustravit Joannes Harduinus e societate Jesu, jussu regis christianissimi Ludovici Magni, in usum serenissimi Delphini. Editio altera emendatior & auctior. 2 Tomi (3 Partes).

      Paris, Typis Antonii-Urbani Coustelier, 1723. Folio. Two cont. full vellum w. seven raised bands on backs and blindstamped ornamentations on boards. Leather title-labels on backs. Bdg.s somewhat worn. Corners bumped and vellum loosening a bit from front-board of volume one. Woodcut title- and end-vignettes, double-page engr. map of "Flumina Quatuor Paradisii Terrestris" and 11 full-page engr. plates depicting coins. 32 pp., double-page map, 790, (2), 1290 pp., 11 ff. (engr. plates).. Second, but by far the best, Harduin-edition. The first was printed in 1685. Consisting of two volumes, volume two divided into two parts, the second part containing the Index Geographicus, Index Nomina Propria, Index Verborum et Sententiarum. Volume two also with the Index Emendationum. Latin text with many very elaborated notes."Of these editions (Paris 1685 (4to) and 1723), by the celebrated Father Harduin, the second edition of 1723, is by far the more copious, splendid, and critical performance. In forming the text, fifteen MSS. were consulted, but only eight of them collated; the excerpta of the remaining seven MSS. were given as by former editors. Explanatory notes are placed under the text, and critical ones are inserted at the end of each book... This edition is upon the whole a very erudite and valuable performance, and may be considered as one of the most useful and extensive works by which the genious and writings of Pliny have been illustrated." (Dibdin 2:325)
