Several woodcuts & extensive tables in the text. 24 p.l., 501, [1] pp. Large 4to, cont. polished speckled calf, initials on upper cover "F.G.Z.S.H.v.W. 1739," spine finely gilt, red morocco lettering piece on spine. Nuremberg: J.M. Seitz & C.C. Zell, 1739. First edition and a very fine copy from the library of [Karl] Friedrich Graf zu Sayn Hohenstein und Wittgenstein (1708-56), with his initials on the upper cover (one sees books from his library on the market from time-to-time. It must have been a fine and handsome collection). Schuebler (1689-1741), was a prominent Nuremberg mathematician, architect, and artist, who wrote many standard works on the design of houses, public buildings, and gardens. He was also engaged in various fields of applied mathematics and became a member of the Royal Prussian Academy of Sciences in 1735. The present work is a practical introduction to all aspects of calculation including multiplication, division, trigonometry (with references to Napier), arithmetical and geometrical progressions, etc. A very fine copy and rare with no copy in the U.S., according to OCLC. ? Poggendorff, II, 853.
