From the library of Eivind Hassler. 123 (of 125) plates, many folding. First edition. Emmanuel Swedenborg led one of the most remarkable careers in the history of science and philosophy. He mastered natural science and mathematics in his youth, writing some 150 works on scientific subjects. He rigorously sought a comprehensive physical explanation of the world based on mathematical and mechanical principles. Gradually his inquiries turned toward philosophical matters and after a profound mystical experience in 1745 he devoted his reasoning almost entirely to the interpretation of religion. His great work of philosophical studies appeared in 1734. It contained three volumes. In voulme one, The Principia, he presented his primary cosmological conclusions. The second volume dealt with iron and steel, and the third volume with copper and brass. ÒIn April, 1733, Swedenborg obtained leave of absence from his assessorial duties, for nine months, in order to see the above work through the press at Leipsic, where it was printed by Andreas Barthel, and published by Friderick Hekel (whose motto, Dominus providebit, with HekelÕs monogram, is on the work). At the expiration of the nine months an extension of leave was granted, to allow the author to see to the completion of his work, which it was estimated would be concluded by April, 1734. Since he returned to Sweden in July, after some further travels in Germany, it appears that the work was completed at the expected time. But we learn from his journal that he reached Halle on March 1, having left Leipsic most probably on the same day. Thus the work must have been finished on or before that date. It had, therefore, been in the press five months, since it was begun on October 5, 1733, and within the same time De Infinito was also printed.Ó - Hyde, 228-230.
