Book Description Reading [Pennsylvania]: Johann Ritter, 1807., 1807. Hardcovers. First edition.. Contemporary marbled boards and plain leather spine. [x], 176, [2] pp. Spine has chips to tips; front joint broken with front cover and free endpaper detached but present; rear joint cracked, tender, but cords still holding; boards rubbed; text has yellowing, moderate foxing, occasional minor soiling, and a damp stain to lower portion from pp 155 to end including rear endpapers; text VG otherwise. This is quite possibly the first mathematics text book originally published in the United States by a German-American. A search through The First Century of German Language Printing in the United States of America turned up nothing earlier, though there were some earlier ready reckoners. There was a 1786 text by Ludwig Höcker, but it was probably an American printing of a work published in Germany earlier before he immigrated. Karpinski, Bibliography of Mathematical Works Printed in America Through 1850, p. 170. Size: Small octavo. Bookseller Inventory # 13917
