Sociatatus, Amsterdam 1723 - Text in Latin. Early reprint of the second edition (Wallis, Newton and Newtonia 1672-1975, 12; See Dibner, Heralds of Science, 11, Horblit 78, and Printing & the Mind of Man 161 for the first edition). Sir Isaac Newton's Principia, Another 'ultima' with additions, according to the Wallis's bibliography. Prefaces to 1713 edition (Cambridge: C. Crownfield) by the author, and by Roger Cotes of Cambridge. Table of contents. Also includes Analysis per Quantitatum Series, Flux, ac Differentias; cum Enumeratione Linearum Tertii Ordinis, with preface by W. Jones. Numerous diagrams in text. The book constitutes the greatest work in the history of science (Printing and the Mind of Man). The Principia is the foundation work on dynamics and gravitation and the first successful scientific model of the mechanisms of the universe. Copernicus, Galileo and Kepler had certainly shown the way; but where they described the phenomena they observed, Newton explained the underlying universal laws (ibid), these being the laws of gravitation and planetary motion, which established a concept of the universe unchallenged until Einstein. In a very sympathetic reproduction of an 18th century Oxford binding by Sean Richards of BYZANTIUM STUDIOS in Norman, Oklahoma. 4to., full calf reporoduction of an oxford binding, gilt on spine. (xviii), 484, (8), (xii), 107+(1) pages. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
