Item Description: London: for the Royal Society by Joseph Streater, 1687, 1687. Hardcover. Book Condition: Near Fine. 1st Edition. AN EXCELLENT COPY OF THE GREATEST WORK IN SCIENCE. Contemporary calf, unrestored. See our website www.19thshop.com for full details. First edition of Isaac Newton’s Principia, “generally described as the greatest work in the history of science” (PMM). This is an excellent, entirely unrestored copy of the first state with the preferred two-line imprint. “Copernicus, Galileo, and Kepler had certainly shown the way; but where they described the phenomena they observed, Newton ex- plained the underlying universal laws. The Principia provided the great synthesis of the cosmos, proving finally its physical unity” (PMM). “For the first time a single mathematical law could explain the motion of objects on earth as well as the phenomena of the heavens. It was this grand conception that produced a general revolution in human thought, equaled perhaps only by that following Darwin’s Origin of Species” (PMM). This treatise on dynamics and gravitation is undoubtedly “the most influential scientific publication of the 17th century” (Horblit). Newton presents his three laws of motion, discusses the movement of bodies through gases and liquids, defines mass and force, presents the corpuscular theory of light, and sets forth the principal of universal gravitation. No work was more seminal in the development of modern physics and astronomy than Newton’s Principia. Its conclusion that the force retaining the planets in their orbits is one in kind with terrestrial gravity ended forever the view dating back at least to Aristotle that the celestial realm calls for one science and the sublunar realm, another. Just as the Preface to its first edition had proposed, the ultimate success of Newton’s theory of gravity made the identification of the fundamental forces of nature and their characterization in laws the primary pursuit of physics” (Stanford Philosophy). Neither the Royal Society nor Newton was willing or able to finance the publication of the Principia. Newton’s friend, astronomer Edmund Halley, underwrote the edition and supervised publication; about 300-400 copies were printed. There are two variant title pages. This is the first state, the so-called English issue, with the title conjugate and the two-line imprint; the name of the bookseller Samuel Smith, was added to the cancel title-page for copies presumably bound for export. We have always preferred the English issue of this epochal book, particularly when found in a contemporary English calf binding. Printing and the Mind of Man 161.

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 author’s 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 Leibnitz’s independent discovery of the calculus. In omitting Leibnitz’s 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 Darwin’s Origin of Species" (Printing and the Mind of Man 161, describing the first edition).

Item Description: Cambridge: [Cornelius Crownfield], 1713, 1713. 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) 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. 4to. Engraved vignette on title, one folding engraved plate, and numerous woodcut diagrams and illustrations in the text. 14 leaves, 484, [8] pp. Modern brown half morocco and cloth, two small paper repairs to title page at right margin and one small repair to the second leaf, not affecting the text. Wallis 8; Grey 8; Babson 8; DSB X, p. 64; for the first edition of the PRINCIPIA (1687), see: PMM 161; Dibner 11; Horblit 78; Norman 1586. Bookseller Inventory # 252301

Item Description: Cambridge University Press,, Cambridge:, 1713. 4º (23,7 x 19 cm). 14 hojas, 484 páginas, 4 hojas. 1 hoja plegada. Encuadernación inglesa del siglo xviii en piel prensada con los planos decorados "à la Du Seuil". Sin lavar ni prensar. PMM 161 para la primera edición. Gray 8. Wallace 8. Babson 12. PMM 161 para la primera edición de los Principia, 1687. Ex-libris y firma de F.R. Robinson. En la guarda posterior: "Collated & Complete. Bernadr Quaritch". Segunda edición, primer estado. Después del éxito intelectual y científico que supuso la edición en 1687 de estos Principios matemáticos de la filosofía natural, Newton tardó más de 20 años en dedicarle tiempo y concentración a la segunda edición, pues los ejemplares de la primera sólo empezaron a escasear hacia 1708, por lo que no parece que éste fuera un éxito editorial. Una vez puesto Newton a corregir el texto de 1687, el proceso editorial de la segunda edición de los principia es uno de los anecdotarios editoriales más importantes de la historia de la edición de libros de ciencia. Newton aceptó en 1709 los insistentes requerimientos de Richard Bentley, director del Trinity College de Cambridge para que accediera a revisar la primera edición de los Principia. y que una segunda auctior et emendatior saliera de las prensas de la universidad. Newton accedió a ello y a que un matemático de Cambridge, el catedrático Roger Cotes, revisara el texto y la impresión a medida que avanzaba. En octubre de 1709, Cotes recibió un manuscrito que ofrecía casi la primera mitad del libro, junto con una carta de Newton. En la carta, Newton demuestra una indolencia como editor que no se correspondía con su esperable precisión como científico, y pide a Cotes que no se tome la molestia de revisar "todas las demostraciones que contienen los Principia" y que si acierta a editarlo según el manuscrito que el propio Newton le envía, corrigiendo sólo algunos fallos de lectura, tendrá trabajo más que suficiente. Entre finales de 1709 y el día en que el libro salió de las prensas, Cotes no dejó de revisar hasta la última proposición. En junio de 1710 Cotes había corregido todo el material que Newton le había enviado, esto es, casi la mistad del volumen, las 224 páginas. De la misma manera había obligado a Newton a mantener una correspondencia que le desagradaba por cuanto le ponía al descubierto algo más que erratas. Así las anotaciones de Cotes sobre la Sección VI merecieron una deplorable respuesta de Sir Isaac diciendo que no era preciso examinar todos los cálculos pues los errores no eran consecuencia de una razonamiento erróneo y por tanto podían ser corregidos por el propio lector. Entre el verano de 1709 y comienzos de 1712 apenas se pudo avanzar en la corrección e impresión del volumen: Newton estuvo ocupado en polémicas con Leibniz y con la obra del astrónomo real Flamsteed. Además Cotes siguió encontrando problemas graves en la redacción: la solución de la proposición XLVII de la sección VIII tardó más de ocho meses en quedar resuelta. En la primavera de 1712 se habían corregido más de 300 hojas de las 484 que tiene el libro. Hasta que se concluyó el volumen el 30 de junio de 1713, la correspondencia entre Cotes y Newton se hizo más espesa y más dura: la polémica con Leibniz, el error que Bernoulli dijo detectar en la Proposición X y las constantes correcciones de Cotes agriaron el gusto que Newton tenía por el libro. Excitado como autor por tantos errores declarados, en octubre de 1712 tomó las riendas de la edición y corrigió la famosa proposición X sobre la gravedad, tras lo cual hubo de reimprimirse un pliego, y acabó el difícil capítulo sobre la luna. Asimismo redacto el fundamental Escolio General, donde explica a las claras su teoría de la gravitación, la hace compatible con la divinidad y exclama: Dios no padece el movimiento de los cuerpos celestes; éstos no hallan impedimento en la omnipresencia de Dios. Este Escolio y el prefacio de Cotes son los añadidos más visibles de la segunda edición de los Principia. Pero hemos visto que en la minuciosa tarea de. Bookseller Inventory # 11996

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.
