This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1839 edition. Excerpt: ...Bodl. 3623. MSS. Paris, Lat. 7213, 7214, 7215. MS. Harl. Mus. Brit. 5266: " per Adelardum Bathoniensum de Arábico in Latinum translatus,cumCommento Campani Novariensis."). In the Library of Queens' College, Cambridge, there was formerly a MS. entitled "Geometría Euclidis cum Commentario Adelardi" (Lelandi Collect, tom.iii. p. 19), and Chasles (Aperçu Historique, p. 509,) mentions one in the library of the Dominicans of St. Marc at Florence, under the same title; this would appear to intimate that the commentary is also by Adelard, and many MSS. in which the name of Campanus does not appear, contain the commentary, (MS. Oxon. in Coll. S. Trin. 30, iv. MS. Harl. Mus. Brit. 5404. MS. Bib. Pub. Cant. Dd. 12, 61). Doctor John Dee, in the Catalogue of his Collection of MSS. (MS. Harl. 1879. MS. Bib. Trin. Coll. Cant. Collect. Gal. O. 4, 20. MS. Ashm. 1142.) gives the title of one, in which the books of Euclid on Optics and Catoptrics, as well as the Elements, appear under Adelard's name. There have been two independent notices of the plagiarism of Campanus; one by Charles Butler, (the author of the " Introduction to the Mathematics," 8vo. 1814,) in some MS. papers in the Editor's possession: the other by the Author of the article Geometry, in the " Penny Cyclopaedia." heght of fe thyng whos heght you sekes.
