Item Description: London Apud Guil. & Joh. Innys, 1726. Newton's "Principia"- Large Paper Copy NEWTON, Sir Isaac. Philosophiæ naturalis principia mathematica. Editio tertia aucta & emendata. London: Apud Guil. & Joh. Innys, 1726. Third edition. One of 200 Large-Paper copies on "General Royal paper with the "CC" watermark. Quarto (28.9 x 22.2 cm). [34], 530, [6, index] pp. With engraved frontispiece portrait and numerous diagrams. Bound without rear ad, but with initial privilege leaf and half-title leaf. Collates as copy 2 of Babson. Contemporary full vellum, front board expertly reattached. Black calf spine label, lettered in gilt. Faint dampstain at upper corner of initial leaves. A very nice large, clean copy. "This edition was the last published during the authorís lifetime and the basis of all subsequent editions. It was edited by Henry Pemberton, M.D., F.R.S., and contains a new preface by Newton and a large number of alterations, the most important being the scholium on fluxions, in which Leibnitz had been mentioned by name. This had been considered an acknowledgement of Leibnitzís independent discovery of the calculus. In omitting Leibnitzís name in this edition, Newton was criticized as taking advantage of an opponent whose death had prevented any reply" (Babson, p. 12). Third edition of "the greatest work in the history of science" (Printing and the Mind of Man). In the Principia, Newton formulated the three laws of motion from which he derived the principle of universal gravitation, "wherein all bodies, of whatever mass, attract one another in proportion to their masses and in inverse ratio as the square of the distance between them. This applies to dust particles as to the mightiest celestial bodies" (Dibner). "Copernicus, Galileo and Kepler had certainly shown the way; but where they described the phenomena they observed, Newton explained the underlying universal laws. The Principia provided the great synthesis of the cosmos, proving finally its physical unity. Newton showed that the important and dramatic aspects of nature that were subject to the universal law of gravitation could be explained, in mathematical terms, within a single physical theory.The same laws of gravitation and motion rule everywhere; for the first time a single mathematical law could explain the motion of objects on earth as well as the phenomena of the heavens. The whole cosmos is composed of inter-connecting parts influencing each other according to these laws. It was this grand conception that produced a general revolution in human thought, equalled perhaps only by that following Darwinís Origin of Species" (Printing and the Mind of Man 161, describing the first edition).

Item Description: Joseph Streater, London, 1687. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. 4to. Contemporary full Dutch vellum with four raised bands and "Newton" in ink on spine. This fully contemporary binding, presumably the one that the book was given before it was released in trade, has been re-stitched, leaving an extra folding to the front hinge. Quire A (including the title page), cancel leaf P4, quire Fff, folding plate of comet, and the errata leaf Ooo4 all supplied in very good facsimile on near contemporary paper (in total 11 leaves), lacking the final blank. Otherwise fine with only a bit of soiling. Occasional browning and brown-spotting. Leaves Y2 to Aa2 and Dd4 to Gg2 with a minor marginal wormtrack to upper corner, not affecting lettering. A small wormtrack to lower margin of leaves Ww3 to Yy4, with light rice-paper-restoration to five of the leaves, none of it causing loss of lettering. A small marginal paper restoration to Zz2. A few small professional repairs to ***2, causing minor loss of a few letters, which have been added in fine hand, barely noticeable. 6 last leaves with marginal paper restoration, far from affecting lettering. Except for the wanting leaves a fine and attractive copy. (8), 510, (1, -errata) (recte: (8), 494 pp., i.e. pp. 1-383 + 400 - 510 - Gray: "Then there is the omitted paging between the Second and Third Books, though the last page of the Second Book was altered from 384 to 400 to show the omission was known, and the *** used as signature to the last sheet of the Second Book, to avoid the overlapping of signatures.", (1, -errata)) + 1 folded plate. Numerous woodcut diagrams in the text. ---- PMM 161; Gray pp. 5-7; Babson, pp. 9-10; Dibner 11; Neville, p. 224; Sparrow 151; Horblit 78; Norman 692. - Neville: "During the printing of the "Principia" various corrections were made, but when the sheets were gathered for binding, no attention was paid to those corrected or uncorrected, and no particular group of variants can be associated with either issue"). First edition, in the extremely scarce "Export issue" (meant for distribution on the Continent) with the cancel title-page bearing the three-line Sam. Smith imprint, of "the greatest work on exact science that human mind has ever conceived" (Babson). "The first edition comprised only three hundred to four hundred copies. Macomber traced 148 extant copies of the two-line imprint, but only 47 of the three-line" (Neville).Perhaps no other scientific book has changed the thought of man as profoundly as Newton's magnum opus, the "Principia", which is generally considered the most important book within the field of science. The work stands unparallelled in the history of scientific thought."The monumental achievement of Newton (1642-1727), it is the foundation work on dynamics and gravitation. Generally regarded as the greatest work in the history of science, Laplace described it as "pre-eminent above any other production of human genious". (Neville). "The "Principia" is "the greatest work on exact science that human mind has ever conceived" - H. Zeitlinger. "A work which will be memorable not only in the annals of one science or of one country, but will form an epoch in the history of the world and will ever be regarded as the brightest page in the records of human reason." - Brewster. "It is one of the most consistently original books ever written." - Brodesky. "Newton's conclusions on gravity and the motion of the planets established a conception of the universe that was unchallenged until Einstein." - Reichner." (Babson)."[T]he scientific revolution of the seventeenth century culminated in the massive achievements of Newton in dynamics and gravitational astronomy. The "Principia" is generally described as the greatest work in the history of science." (PMM). Bookseller Inventory # 002138

Item Description: [Cornelius Crownfield], Cambridge, 1713. The second edition, expanded and corrected, and the first to include the General Scholium in which Newton gives a general resumé of the work. One of about 750 copies printed, of which 250 were sent to Holland and France. Engraved vignette on title, one folding engraved plate, and numerous woodcut diagrams and illustrations in the text. 14 leaves, 484, [8] pp. 1 vols. 4to. The Second Principia. The critical second edition of what is incontestably the single most important scientific work ever published, one which laid the foundations for modern physics. Published in Newton's lifetime by his friend and collaborater, Roger Cotes (1682-1716), this edition contains for the first time Cotes' Preface which lays out Newton's method, a 7 pp. Index, and most importantly, Newton's own celebrated conclusion entitled SCHOLIUM GENERALE (pp. 481-484), written in response to the objections of Berkeley and Leibniz, in which the author expresses the religious conceptions underlying and supporting his empirical-mathematical construct."Copernicus, Galileo and Kepler had certainly shown the way; but where they described the phenomena they observed, Newton explained the underlying universal laws. The PRINCIPIA provided the great synthesis of the cosmos, proving finally its physical unity. Newton showed that the important and dramatic aspects of nature that were subject to the universal law of gravitation could be explained, in mathematical terms, within a single physical theory. With him the separation of natural and supernatural, of sublunar and superlunar worlds disappeared. The same laws of gravitation and motion rule everywhere; for the first time a single mathematical law could explain the motion of objects on earth as well as the phenomena of the heavens. The whole cosmos is composed of inter-connecting parts influencing each other according to these laws" (PMM).

Item Description: Didier Mutel, Paris, 2011. Didier Mutel (illustrator). First edition thus. 20 cm x 25 cm. 24pp. A very modern homage to Sir Isaac Newton's work, this volume is comprised of twenty-four concrete pages adorned with aquatints by Didier Mutel. Designed without internal text, the illustrations evoke the universe with stars, interstellar dust, heavenly objects, darkness, light. The aquatints have been printed on concrete and then bound together. Title page and pagination are engraved by laser onto the concrete. Housed in a beautiful galuchat slipcase. This is one of forty-two numbered copies. Fine. From the artist's statement: "The concept of the book is to create an original combination of all these elements, physical and poetic, traditional and contemporary. The use of concrete, a heavy material, substantiates the principal of universal gravitation, a notion that, itself, becomes poetic and represents the fundamental idea of this book. The tactile elements, from galuchat to concrete, give rise to a desire to touch and stroke the object, metaphorically representing Newton's laws of motion (mutual attraction), here represented in tangible form.".

Presents very nicely on the shelf. Full calf. The first Glasgow re-issue of the 1739 Jesuits' edition, edited by John Martin Frederick Wright. The first Jesuits' edition was published in Geneva in 1739-1742 and the second in 1760. These so-called Jesuits' editions (so-called because the editors were really Minims) are valued because of their copious commentary, and also because they contain additional works by Bernoully, Maclarin, and Euler which represent all that was done on the theory of tides between the publication of Newton's Principia and the investigations of Laplace.
