        The Analyst; or, a discourse addressed to an infidel mathematician. Wherein it is examined whether the object, principles, and inferences of the modern analysis are more distinctly conceived, or more evidently deduced, than religious mysteries and points of faith.London: J. Tonson, 1734.

      First edition, first issue, of Berkeley's famous attack on the new analysis of Newton and Leibniz, which the historian Florian Cajori described as "the most spectacular event of the century in the history of British mathematics" (Florian Cajori), bound with Berkeley's important <i>Theory of Vision</i> (1733) and <i>Defence of Free-Thinking in Mathematics</i> (1735), and five more pamphlets.<br/><br/> The <i>Analyst</i> "marks a turning-point in the history of mathematical thought in Great Britain" (Cajori); "Despite the great progress of analysis during the 18th century, foundational questions remained largely unsolved. ... The most influential criticism of the new analysis was put forward by the famous English philosopher George Berkeley in 1734. The subtitle of his work <i>The Analyst Or A Discourse Addressed to an Infidel Mathematician</i> [referred to Newton's friend and proponent of fluxions Edmund Haley]. ... Berkeley's criticism was well informed and efficient. Rooted in the tradition of English sensualism, he showed that many definitions in the infinitesimal calculus are paradoxical and cannot be justified by intuition. He explained the success of the new calculus by a repeated neglect of infinitely small quantities leading through a compensation of errors to a correct answer." (Jahnke).<br/><br/> "As a result [of the publication of the <i>Analyst</i>], there appeared within the next seven years some thirty pamphlets and articles which attempted to remedy the situation. The first appeared in 1734, a pamphlet by James Jurin, <i>Geometry No Friend to Indidelity...</i> Berkeley answered Jurin in 1735, in <i>A Defence of Freethinking in Mathematics</i> [bound in the offered volume], and justly asserted that the latter was attempting to defend what he did not understand. In this work Berkeley again appealed to the divergence in Newton's views - as presented in <i>De analysi</i>, the <i>Principia</i>, and <i>De quadratura</i> - to show a lack of clarity in the ides of moments, fluxions, and limits ... In the meantime, however, numerous attempts, some noteworthy and others insignificant, were made to find new and more satisfactory forms and arguments in which to present Newton's method. By far the ablest and most famous of these was made by Colin Maclaurin. In his <i>Treatise of Fluxions</i>, in 1744, he aimed not to alter the conceptions invlolved in Newton's fluxions, but to demonstrate the validity of his method by rigorous procedures of the ancients - to deduce the new analysis from a few 'unexceptional principles'. Maclaurin professed in the preface of this work that the <i>Analyst</i> controversy had given occasion to his treatise." (Boyer). <br/><br/> Berkeley's <i>Theory of Vision</i> (1733), also bound into this volume, is a follow-up and defense of his earlier <i>Essay towards a New Theory of Vision</i> (1709) in which he had attacked Newton's cosmology. Keynes describes the 1733 as a work "of major importance". <br/><br/> Cajori, <i>A History of the Conceptions of Limits and Fluxions</i>, p. 89; Jahnke, <i>A History of Analysis</i>, p.127; Boyer, <i>The Concepts of the Calculus</i>, pp. 224-33; see also Kline, <i>Mathematical Thought</i>, pp. 427-28. <br/><br/> <i>Analyst</i>: Barchas 167; Richard Green 31; Stanitz 52A; Honeyman 287; Keynes 32. <i>Theory of Vision</i>: Keynes 4. <i> Defence of Free-Thinking in Mathematics</i>: Keynes 36. <br/><br/> The five other pamphlets bound in this volume are: <br/> BERKELEY, George.

        Systema Intellectuale huius Universi seu de Veris Naturae rerum originibus Commentarii qvibus omnis eorum Philosophia, qvi Deum esse negant, funditus evertitur. Accedunt Reliqua eius Opuscula. Joannes Lavrentius Moshemius, Omnia ex Anglico Latine vertit. (Five works in two volumes).

      Jena, Vidvae Meyer, 1733. Folio. Cont. full calf w. richly gilt back. A bit of wear to extremities, but a very nice and clean copy. Beautiful vignettes and woodcut initials at beginning, as well as woodcut end-vignettes to the larger sections. Title-page printed in red and black. Engraved portrait-frontispiece, engraved frontispiece (depicting Aristotle, Socrates, Strato, Epicur, Anaximander and Pythagoras), (69), 1206; 1 blank leaf, (8), 88; 47, (1); (16), 42; (8), 25, (1); (52, -Index) pp.. First Latin edition of Cudworth's main work, "The true Intellectual System of the World" from 1678. The English philosopher Ralph Cudworth (1617- 1688) was the leader of the Cambridge Platonists. In 1678 he published parts of his main work, the "Intellectual System", which, according to Cudworth himself, arose out of a discourse refuting determinism, or, as he put it, "fatal necessity". Cudworth set out to prove three matters that together constitute the intellectual system of the universe (in opposition to the physical), namely the existence of God, the naturalness of moral distinctions, and the reality of human freedom, thereby disproving atheism, religious fatalism, and the fatalism of the Stoics. In his criticism of materialistic atheism, Cudworth principally aimed at Hobbes, who he necessarily had to refute. Apart from his great attempt to refute atheism and all the philosophers that he could connect with it, a much discussed part of the book is that in which he introduces his conception of the "Plastic Medium", which is supposed to explain the laws of nature without referring everything directly back to God, and which very much resembles Plato's "World-Soul". This "Plastic Medium" resulted in long philosophic controversies."His [Cudworth's] most important work, The true Intellectual System..., is a fragment of an even larger work he had planned to refute materialism of Epicurus and of Thomas Hobbes. Cudworth believed that a "rightly understood" mechanical and corpuscular philosophy did not destroy traditional religion but instead offered it new support. If matter was inert and utterly passive, then a spiritual principle was necessary to endow the universe with life and activity. But the principle involved in the ordinary course of nature was not to be equated with God, for then He would be responsible for the "Errors and bungles" in nature. Such tasks were performed by a subordinate and unconscious "plastic nature". Cudworth rejected Cartesian dualism and asserted cosmic continuity." (P.M. Rattansi in DSB).

Halftitle, 2 titlepages printed in red and black, each with engraved vignette. (20),107,(1);(1),(2) pp., 6 fine engraved vignettes, 2 engraved textillustrations and 42 large engraved plates (Hildebrand del - Ioh. Aug. Corvinus sculp.) with 72 illustrations of different species of starfish. Some browning and offsettings to leaves, the first ab. 25 plates with some brownspots, scattered brownspots throughout. A large copy with broad margins. Small stamps on titlepage, having the oval stamp of George Cuvier.. First edition of this scarce monograph on starfish. It is the first work of its kind, wholly devoted to the description and classification of sea stars... the genus Linckiana was named after the author. Linck was a Leipzig pharmacist who amassed a great collection of natural history specimens (described in his catalogue "Index Musei Linckiani).- In his work, "Regne Animal", George Cuvier worked with the classification and organisation of the Stellaridés, and it is obvious that Cuvier in this connection has used this copy of De Stellis.... "En 1733, parut le grand ouvrage de Linck: "De Stellis marinis". Bien qu'il tratite plus spécialement de la classification, on peut y trouver quelques notions sur la disposition des pièces solides: "Le corps est entouré par un squelette ayant la forme d'un treillage. Sur la partie ventrale, ce treillage est composé d'un nombre incalculable de pièces osseuses. Sur le dos, est une verrue caracteristique et toujours très discernable. Le nombre des rayons a une grand fixité dans une meme espèce: Communissima radiorum affectio ets numerus quo species stellarum plures conveniunt. "C'est par suite de sa confiance dans ce principe que Linck a classé les Stellerides d'Apres le nombre de leurs rayons. "Les piquuaantssont rogides, subtiles, aigus, ceux qui entourent la bouche son plus mobiles, plus allongés que les autres; ils sont Meme semblables à des dents: ainsi leur but ne saurait étre deouteux." (Albert Gaudry in "Mémoire sur les Pièces solides des Stellerides").(Our translation:) "In 1733, the importent work by Linck appeared: "De Stellis marinis". As well as he here treats classification very specifically, one can also here find some notions on the disposition of the bodies: "The body is surrounded by a skeleton having the form of a grating. As to the part of the abdomen, this grating is composed of an incalculable number of bony parts. As to the back, there is a characteristic wart which is always very easy to distinguish. The number of rays has a large constancy in one and the same species:Communissima radiorum affection est numerous quo species stellarum plures convenient." It is through the succession of his confidence in this principle that Linck has classified the "Stellerides" after the number of their rays. "The pointed ones are unbendable, clear, sharp; those that surround mouth are more mobile, longer than the others; they are also more comparable with those from the teeth: thus their purpose will never be known to be doubted." - Nissen ZBI: 2514 - Brunet III,1081 - BMC (NH) III: 1115
