Stuttgart Hoffmann -44 1840 - (21 x 13,5 cm). 448 S./ 584 S./ 708 S./ 40 S. Dekorative Halblederbände der Zeit (3) und Original-Rückenbroschur (1). Erste deutsche Ausgabe mit dem meist fehlenden 40-seitigen Register. - "The 'History' had no rivals in its day and remains, despite unevenness, one of the important surveys of science from the Greeks to the nineteenth century. Whewell appreaciated the importance of Greek science, especially astronomy, but showed typical disregard for the contributions of medieval scientists. His assessment of the importance of contributions of such major figures of Galileo and Descartes suffers from a heavy intrusion of religious and philosophical biases. But his treatment of Newton and other modern mathematical scientists is fair and sometimes brilliant, and is based throughout upon detailed considerations of texts" (DSB). - Titel gestempelt. Stellenweise etwas stockfleckig bzw. gebräunt. Einbände gering berieben und bestoßen (die Broschur etwas stärker). Hinterer Deckel von Band 1 etwas fleckig. Insgesamt gut erhalten. - Poggendorff II, 1309; Ziegenfuss II, 866; DSB 14, 292. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
