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: Apud Guil. & Joh. Innys, London, 1726. Hardcover. Book Condition: Near Fine. 3rd Edition. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. LARGE PAPER COPY. 4to (282x222 mm), [36], 530, [8] pp., including half-title, engraved frontispiece portrait by George Vertue facing title, dedication leaf, Halley's commendatory verse leaf, privilege leaf, ad leaf at end; numerous woodcut diagrams and the engraving on p. 506. Contemporary full calf, spine with 5 raised bands richly gilt in compartments, morocco letting piece (extremities worn, spine ends chipped, covers rubbed), sprinkled edges, illegible signatures to first two fly leaves. Very minor occasional spotting and marginal soiling, paper flaw to fore-margin of Rrr1-2, pages 225 to 232 misbound after p.240, index leaf 3y4 re-attached, closed tear at gutter of leaves Yyy1-4. An outstanding, clean and bright copy. ---- PMM 161 (describing the first edition); Babson 13; Gray 9; Wallis 9; Todd E3(2); HBS 64483. - The stated third edition, this one of the 200 large-paper copies on "Writing Royal Paper" with the "CC" watermark. According to W.B.Todd, Bibliography of the Principia, p.855, this is the second impression, determined by the progressive wearing of type fractures and dislocations. The Babson catalogue notes that the license leaf had no assigned signature location, and is found at various places in copies of the regular edition. This edition was the last published during the author's lifetime and is the basis for all subsequent editions. The editor was Henry Pemberton, M.D., F.R.S., and this recension of the text contains a new preface by Newton and a large number of alterations. The most important of these is in the scholium on fluxions, in which Leibnitz had been mentioned by name in the earlier editions. His name is absent here, leading to claims that Newton was avoiding sharing credit for the development of calculus with his Continental rival. Bookseller Inventory # 002023

Item Description: Cambridge (University Press) 1713, 1713. The second edition, the first to include the General Scholium in which Newton gives a general resume 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. Large 4to, bound in full English contemporary polished calf, the spine fully gilt and very handsome, morocco lettering label gilt, compartments handsomely gilt between raised bands of the spine. 14 leaves, 484, [8]. A very handsome copy, the back expertly and exquisitely restored to style, title with usual offset from binding turn-ins in fore-margin, fore-margin of title very slightly frayed, small neat repair to upper inner corner of title. ONE OF THE GREATEST BOOKS EVER PENNED, AND A FOUNDATION OF ALL MODERN SCIENCE. THE CORNERSTONE TREATISE ON DYNAMICS AND GRAVITATION, "THE MOST INFLUENTIAL SCIENTIFIC PUBLICATION OF THE 17TH CENTURY" (Horblit) A pleasing and handsome copy of the PRINCIPIA. "Richard Bentley, Master of Trinity College, was instrumental in bringing out this second edition, which was edited by Roger Cotes, F.R.S. In his important preface, Cotes attacks the Cartesian philosophy then still in vogue in the universities, and refutes an assertion that Newton's theory of attraction is a causa occulta. It contains a second preface by Newton and considerable additions, the chapters on the lunar theory and the theory of comets being much enlarged" (- Babson 12). Newton, in the PRINCIPIA, stated the three laws of motion that establish the relationship of mass, force, and direction; he also discussed the movement of bodies through gases and liquids, and defined mass and force and the corpuscular theory of light. But most importantly, he established the principal of universal gravitation and the motion of the planets. "Copernicus, Newton, and Einstein are the three corner-stones of our conception of the universe. Few could grasp Newton's reasoning at the time, and his fame was spread on the Continent by Voltaire's ELEMENS DE LA PHILOSOPHIE DE NEUTON, 1738" (PMM). Roger Cotes, 1682-1716, "was not only able enough to see where Principia could be improved, but also able to criticise Newton and correct his errors without ever antagonising him - no mean feat . [Cotes’s Preface contains] a strong attack against Cartesian physics in general and the vortex theory of planetary motion in particular . The most significant feature remains the number of changes introduced into this edition [including] the propositions on the resistance of fluids, the lunar theory, the procession of the equinoxes, the theory of comets . On [Cotes’s] death Newton bestowed on him the tribute he had denied him in his life: if he had lived we might have known something". Bookseller Inventory # 19328

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.

[i] = Dedication page + [iii]-[iv] = Halley's Poem to Newton + [v]-[viii] = Newton's Preface [1713] + [ix]-[xxiv] = Editor's Preface + [xxv]-[xxvi] = Index + 1-484 + [485]-[491] = Index Rerum. Quarto. Second Edition, Second Printing (Amsterdam Issue).Isaac Newton's Monumental Principia Mathematica, A Foundation Stone to All of Modern Science - The Robert Honeyman Copy of the Second Edition (First Amsterdam Issue, 1714)The title page printed in red and black with an engraved device. Illustrated throughout with numerous woodcut diagrams and with a folded engraved plate illustrating the orbits of comets facing page 464. Newton's monumental Principia was originally presented to the world in 1687. The second - much enlarged - edition was published in Cambridge in 1713. This second printing of that revised text was released the following year in Amsterdam having been entirely reset from the Cambridge copy and the text corrected for known errors. (There was yet another Amsterdam printing of this second edition in 1723.) The third edition of the Principia - the last in Newton's lifetime - was published in 1726. In September of 1709 Newton placed the emended text of Principia into the hands of his editor Roger Cotes who suggested further revisions and wrote a lengthy preface defending the Newtonian system. His preface includes an interesting reference to the New World as Cotes asserts that the law of gravity functions in America precisely as it does in Europe. Newton himself lists the major emendations at the end of his author's preface. These changes pertain to the laws of orbiting bodies, the resistance of fluids, lunar declinations, and comets. "Richard Bentley, Master of the Trinity College, was instrumental in bringing out this second edition, which was edited by Roger Cotes, F.R.S. In his important preface, Cotes attacks the Cartesian philosophy, then still in vogue in the universities, and refutes an assertion that Newton's theory of attraction is a causa occulta. It contains a second preface by Newton and considerable additions, the chapters on the lunar theory and the theory of comets being much enlarged" (Babson 12).It is in this edition of the Principia that Newton's famous additions to the theory of the motion of the moon and the planets appear, as well as many other important additions and corrections including the famous General Scholium in which Newton gives a general resume of the work. A beautiful contemporary full vellum binding. There is an old illustrated bookplate (Christian Ernst) and Robert Honeyman's bookplate on the side front cover. Otherwise this is an absolutely gorgeous copy of this world-famous and important book. PHOTOS AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST. Bookseller Inventory # 525

The Principia Mathematica is considered the founding document of modern science and the point of origination for our understanding of the physical world. This First Amsterdam Edition is based upon the Second Cambridge edition of 1713 which was edited by Roger Cotes. The type was reset for the Amsterdam edition and obvious errors corrected. The process of producing the second edition was a lengthy one. Newton gave Cotes his draft in 1709. Cotes suggested significant changes and added an editor's preface. The volume was printed with Newton's preface of 1686 as well as a new preface of 1713 in which he lists major changes in this edition of the Principia. "It contains a second preface by Newton and considerable additions, the chapters on the lunar theory and the theory of comets being much enlarged. The first edition ended as casually as if the author had grown weary of the task and had suddenly decided to write no more. But a General Scholium was added to the second edition in which Newton sums up the purpose and accomplishment of the work." (Babson 12). Wallis, Newton & Newtoniana 11. Bookseller Inventory # 45201

Contemporary Dutch vellum over boards, boards with blindstamped central design and double ruled in blind, spine lettered in manuscript, raised bands, red speckled edges. Small bookplate to front pastedown. Binding somewhat soiled, scattered minor foxing, occasional marginal toning, inscription on the front free endpaper abraded with resulting small holes, and small puncture to the rear pastedown that is lifting at the edges. An excellent copy. Woodcut vignette to title page, 3 engraved folding plates, numerous woodcut diagrams in the text. Second Amsterdam edition, two parts in one volume as issued. This is the only edition of the Principia to include the text of the 1711 Analysis per Quantitatum Series, Fluxiones ac Differentias, Newton's first independent treatise on mathematics, containing his invention of the calculus - here with a separate title page, pagination, and index. The "greatest work in the history of science" (PMM) in which Isaac Newton (1642-1727) laid out in mathematical terms the principles of time, force and motion that explained a wide range of previously unrelated phenomena and made Newton an international leader in scientific research. His theories provided the basis for the development of modern physical science. "Copernicus, Gallileo and Kepler had certainly shown the way; but where they describe the phenomena they observed, Newton explained the underlaying 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 gravitation law 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" (PMM). PMM; Babson 12.

Item Description: Geneva, G. & A. Philibert, 1760. 3 vols., bound in four, 4to, pp. xxxii, 548; [viii], 422; [viii], xxviii, [1-]376; [375-]536, viii [recte vi], [537-]703, with title printed in red and black and numerous diagrams in text; some browning and occasional foxing; a good copy in contemporary speckled calf, rubbed.an attractively bound copy of the second 'jesuit' edition, based upon the 1739-42 edition, with some corrections and alterations to the text. This edition is esteemed for the copious commentary by its editors Le Seur and Jacquier. 'It also contains in vol. III the following important pieces which were awarded the prize of the French Academy in 1724 for solving the problem of the motion of the tides from the theory of gravity: Traité sur le Flux et Reflux de la Mer par Daniel Bernoulli (pp. 133-246); de Causa Physica Fluxus et Refluxus Maris a Colin Maclaurin (pp. 247-282); Inquisitio Physica in Causam Fluxus ac Refluxus Maris a Leonardo Euler (pp. 283-374). These represent all that was done on the theory of tides between the publication of Newton's Principia and the investigations of Laplace' (Babson Catalogue).'Reissued five times, the [inappropriately-named] Jesuit edition so dominated the market that no new Latin edition of Principia appeared between the publication of the third edition in 1726 and the appearance of the variorum edition of Koyré and Cohen in 1972 With its rich editorial content, extensive summaries and detailed index, the Jesuit edition remains the most ambitious ever published' (Gjertsen, The Newton Handbook p. 281 and p. 477).Babson 31; Wallis 14.S954.

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.".

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.

Item Description: Harvard University Press, Cambridge, 1972. hardcover. Book Condition: near fine. Dust Jacket Condition: very good(+). Third edition of Newton's masterpiece."The most influential scientific publication of the 17th century." -Horblit. "The Principia is generally described as the greatest work in the history of science. 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. It was this grand conception that produced a general revolution in human thought, equalled perhaps only by that following Darwin's Origin of Species." -PMM. Reprint of the third edition (1726) with Variant Readings. Edited by Alexandre Koyre and I. Bernard Cohen & Anne Whitman. 2 volumes. Illustrated with hundreds of in-text diagrams. 4to, black cloth, d.w. A near fine copy but for a sloppily removed label on the inside front cover. Bookseller Inventory # 223272
