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: 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: [University Press], Cambridge, 1713. SECOND EDITION. 4to. [xxviii], 484, [6] pp. Complete with 1 folding plate and numerous textual diagrams. Contemporary blind-paneled calf, rebacked; marginal browning on the paste-down and flyleaves, very light marginal dampstains. Ownership signature of Jacobi Hebard on front paste-down. One of only 750 copies printed, this second edition of the Principia, edited by Roger Cotes, contains a leaf of verses by Halley not mentioned in Gray’s bibliography of Newton. 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." Additional material was added by Newton himself, including a second preface and an expanded chapter on the lunar theory of comets. A General Scholium was also added in which Newton sums up the purpose and accomplishment of the work. Bookseller Inventory # 14652

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: Sumptibus Societatis, Amsterdam, 1714. Hardcover. The First Amsterdam Edition of The Principia in contemporary full leather binding with spine in six compartments. Gilt decorations and titling to spine. Covers with mild wear, joints strengthened. With the bookplate of the renowned French Blouet de Camilly family ffep. Endpapers mild soil. Scattered foxing. Title page printed in black and red, engraved vignette. Complete with folding plate of comet orbits between pp. 464-465. 4to. [xxviii], 484, [ 7 Index] pp. An attractive copy of this Classic. 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

Item Description: Amsterdam: Sumptibus Societas, 1723, 1723. Quarto (255 × 192 mm). 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.

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: Coloniae Allobrogum Cl. & Ant. Philibert, 1760. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. 2nd Edition. SECOND JESUITS' EDITION, 1760, published in Geneva, 3 volumes, complete set, Latin text. 4to, approximately 250 x 195 mm, 10 x 7¾ inches, title page in Volume 1 printed red and black, Volumes 2 & 3 printed in black only, as issued, profusely illustrated throughout with diagrams, engraved pictorial headpiece to first chapter in Volumes 1 & 2. Pagination: Volume1: xxxii, 548; Volume 2: [8], 422; Volume 3: [8], xxviii, 703, pages 501-504 in Volume 1 bound out of order, seems to be the same in all copies located, Volume 1 has a half-title but no half-titles to the other volumes as issued, Volume 3 is printed in 2 parts, the second of which has only a drop head title at page 376 as required, there are 2 different pages numbered 375-76, a printer's error, there are a few more pagination errors but all volumes collated and guaranteed complete. Bound in half calf over marbled boards, green gilt lettered labels between raised bands, just stating NEWTON, gilt volume number to each volume. Bindings rubbed, hinges cracked on Volume 1, but still holding firm, 12 mm (½ inch) hole to top of hinge on Volume 3, Volume 2 top hinge has 40 mm (1½ inch) crack, but still holding firm, other hinges rubbed but all covers holding firm, corners worn with board showing through at most tips, green labels unevenly faded, 4 pages have very small holes to top margins, not affecting text, 1 top margin has very small chip, all paper flaws but not affecting text, 2 pages lightly dusty and a few top margins have a light brown horizontal stain, not affecting text, 3 pages have tips of corners missing, paper flaws, some occasional light age-browning due to different paper stock used, small neat old ink inscription to the top margin of each title page, 3 ink shelf numbers to top of the first free endpaper of each volume, occasional small spots and creases as is usual in old books, otherwise a very good set of this classic work. This edition first published in Geneva in 1739 is known as the "Jesuits" edition although the 2 editors Le Seur and Jacquier were Minims not Jesuits. The text of the Principia is that of the third edition, each volume contains a separate book of Principia and the 3rd Volume contains in addition "Traite sur le flux et reflux de la mer. Par mr. Daniel Bernoully": Volume 3, pages 133-246. "De causa physica fluxus et refluxus maris. A d. d. Mac-Laurin": Volume 3, pages 247-282. "Inquisitio physica in causam fluxus et refluxus maris. A d. d. Euler": Volume 3, pages 283-274. These were three prize-winning essays submitted in 1724 to the Academie des Sciences to resolve "the Problem relating to the Motion of the Tides from the theory of gravity". The third volume also contains a long Introductio ad lunae theoriam Newtonionam on pages 537-677. The Jesuits' edition is valued for its copious commentary. See Derek Gjertsen, The Newton Handbook page 477: "With its rich editorial content, extensive summaries and detailed index, the Jesuit edition remains the most ambitious ever published. Between 1727 and 1871 and excluding translations, the only editions of Principia published were Jesuit editions. It is still a desirable and useful work". See also the Babson Catalogue page 19.

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.".

Item Description: Ex Prelo Academico, Typis Andreae Et Joannis M. Duncan, Glasguae (Glasgow), 1822. Full calf. Book Condition: Near Fine. First Printing. First Printing. 4 volumes bound in 2. Vol 1: [iii]-xxx, [1 - index capitum], [1-blank], [1]-431 pp ; Vol 2: [6], [1]-320 pages; Vol 3: [12], [ix]-xxxvi, [1]-344 pages. Vol 4: [4], [iii]-vi, [1]-202 pages. Complete. Short closed tear at the base of page 202, volume 4. Recently rebound in tan calf with spine in 6 compartments, raised bands with red and black labels and gilt decorations, simple gold borders on front and rear panels, and edge decorations. 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. (see Babson 30, Babson 32, Gray 17, and Wallis 17). Bookseller Inventory # 15766

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
