About this Item

1st Italian Edition. 8vo (17.5 x 12 cm). Contemporary vellum. Collation [28], 244; [5], 246-571, [21] pp. + 18 folding engraved plates. The binding has worm hole at bottom of front cover at hinge. Covers have circles with internal geometric lines; some soiling present on front cover, more so on back. Textblock has worming in clear areas at base of spine and about 2 cm in from fore edge with no loss to text. All edges of text block have decorative red, blue and brown streaks. Internal condition of text is very good, clean and bright. This is the first Italian edition of Gravesande's student text book of Newton's physics and the most influential introduction to Newton before 1750. Although the work was published in 1723, it was not accepted in Catholic Italy until 1749. Gravesande was a Dutch philosophe and mathematician, member of the Royal Society of London and laid down the foundations for teaching physics. He was the most influential exponent of Newtonian science outside England. This work is an abridged viersion of his "Physices Elemnta Mathematica" and is the first textbook of Newtonian Physics.
