About this Item

2 works in 1 volume. Sm. 8vo. [ii], 239; 40 pp. 2 large folding engraved plates. Original full mottled blind-ruled calf, spine flat-backed but with elaborate gilt tooling, edges red. EXTREMELY RARE. First and only editions. The first work deals with the center of gravity and the second relates to physics and mathematics. Stanislav Juznic & Bruno Besser write of Ambschell's devoted support for Boscovich. / Anton Ambschell (1749/51-1821), Jesuit, a physicist and mathematician, was born December 10, 1749 in Cirknica, and died July 14, 1821 in Bratislava. He was accepted into the Jesuit order in 1768, from 1773 he was professor of physics at the Ljubljana Jesuit Lyceum. He was deposed in 1785 as rector because of improper conduct by a professor of logic and metaphysics, Nowak, then to 1804 prof. physics and mechanics at the University of Vienna from 1809 onwards lector and canon in Bratislava, where he died. / The Ljubljana Rector and later Viennese Professor Anton Ambschell promoted Boscovich in his textbooks which were famous for Ambschell and his teacher Herbert's very first comparatively exact measurement of the water compressibility. The suppression of the Jesuit order obstructed the development of Boscovich's ideas but in no way removed them from the scientific or students' scene. / The first work is known in only one other copy in the National & University of Slovenia [WorldCat]. The second work, Assertiones ex universa Physica et Mathesi Elememtari, is held at two locations: National library information system of Slovenia, Maribor, and National and University Library [Narodna in univerzitetna knjiznica].
