Later quarter vellum; contents browned with occasional marginal dampstaining and minor worming at top gutter toward the end. ---- Honeyman Sale 2292 (this edition); Dibner 106; Horblit 77a-b; PMM 116; Norman 1573; J. Shurkin, Engines of the Mind: A History of the Computer (New York, 1984), pp. 28-31; STC 18349 (original editions) ¿ This copy is the First continental (Lyon) edition of Napier's 1614 description and canon of logarithms and posthumous 1619 treatise on their construction; second issue, with first title dated 1620 instead of 1619. III: "His 'Description of the Wonderful Table of Logarithms' is unique in the history of science in that a great discovery was the result of the unaided original speculation of one individual without precursors and almost without contemporaries in his field. Napier began work on his tables in 1594, but it was twenty years before he was ready to publish them, in this thin quarto volume of ninety pages" (PMM). Napier's logarithms reduced multiplication and division to a simple process of addition and subtraction, and the extraction of roots to division. "The idea of using logarithms in mathematics was accepted almost instantly, and the slide rule, one of the most important offspring of logarithms, lasted for more than 300 years, until solid-state electronics finally replaced it" (Shurkin, p.30). Napier's invention was immediately adopted by mathematicians both in England and on the continent, including Briggs and Ursinus, who introduced logarithms to Kepler. The book's impact on the art of navigation cannot be underestimated: "Probably no work has ever influenced science as a whole, and mathematics in particular, so profoundly as this modest little book. It opened the way for the abolition, once and for all, of the infinitely laborious, nay, nightmarish, processes of long division and multiplication, of finding the power and the root of numbers." (D.W. Waters, The Art of Navigation in England in Elizabethan and Early Stuart Times, New Haven, 1958, p.402). Henry Briggs saw the immense power of Napier's tool and "with his strong navigational bent" put the work into English so that it could be "of very great use for Mariners. a booke of more than ordinary worth, especially for Sea-Men" (Waters, p.404).

"In 1747 d'Alembert published two more important works, one of which, the Réflexions sur la cause générale des Vents, won a prize from the Prussian Academy. In it appear the first general use of partial differential equations in mathematical physics. Euler later perfected the techniques of using these equations . D'Alembert's treatise on winds was the only of his works honored by a prize and, ironically, was later shown to be based on insufficient assumptions. D'Alembert assumed that wind patterns were the result of tidal effects on the atmosphere, and he relegated the influence of heat to a minor role, one that caused only local variations from the general circulation. Still, as a work on atmospheric tides it was successful, and Lagrange continued to praise d'Alemberts's efforts many years later." (DSB I, p.113). Bookseller Inventory # 002024

"Pavlov contributed to many areas of physiology and neurological sciences. Most of his work involved research in temperament, conditioning and involuntary reflex actions. Pavlov performed and directed experiments on digestion, eventually publishing The Work of the Digestive Glands in 1897, after 12 years of research. His experiments earned him the 1904 Nobel Prize in Physiology and Medicine. These experiments included surgically extracting portions of the digestive system from animals, severing nerve bundles to determine the effects, and implanting fistulas between digestive organs and an external pouch to examine the organ's contents. This research served as a base for broad research on the digestive system . The concept for which Pavlov is famous is the "conditioned reflex" . As Pavlov's work became known in the West, particularly through the writings of John B. Watson, the idea of "conditioning" as an automatic form of learning became a key concept in the developing specialism of comparative psychology, and the general approach to psychology that underlay it, behaviorism. Pavlov's work with classical conditioning was of huge influence to how humans perceive themselves, their behavior and learning processes and his studies of classical conditioning continue to be central to modern behavior therapy."

Item Description: W. Gruyter, Berlin, 1923. Soft cover. Book Condition: Fine. 1st Edition. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. Offprint from: Sitzungsberichte der Preussischen Akademie der Wissenschaften. 4to (254x183 mm). Publisher's wrappers. A fine and fresh copy of the rare offprint. ---- Weil *132; Schilpp--Shields 171; Alicke 113; Norman 698; Boni 141 - First edition. Marked with an asterisk by Weil, denoting a major paper. Einstein's attempts to formulate a unified field theory stemmed from his dissatisfaction with the general relativity theory, which did not adequately incorporate the electromagnetic field into the geometry of space-time. In 1918 Hermann Weyl had begun investigating the possibility of constructing a unified field theory preserving the dimensionality of space-time while formally altering its geometry, making it a special case of the class known as affine geometries. Einstein's first investigation of Weyl's ideas, published in the present paper, introduced the notion of distant parallelism; however Einstein later rejected Weyl's theory.
