About this Item

Small 4to (204 x 165mm), 28pp; woodcut head- and tail-piece. No folding plate. Text in Latin, some German. Marbled paper backstrip; (light dampstaining, otherwise clean). First Edition of Daniel Bernoulliís Doctoral Thesis, a pioneering dissertation on the medical applications of mathematical and statistical data. Bernoulli, a Swiss mathematician, completed his doctorate in medicine in 1720 at the University of Basel. He was known to have published profuse amounts of research throughout his lifetime including his masterpiece on pressure and fluid hydraulics Hyrdodynamica (1738). Bernoulliís most important works considered the basic properties of fluid flow, pressure, density and velocity, and formed the Bernoulli principle. This principle states that as the speed of a fluid increases, its pressure decreases. In this his seminal study for his Doctorate degree, Bernoulli showed the potential use of demographic data taken from baptism, marriage and death records and applied it to statistical sciences like physiology, pathology, semiology, hygiene, dietetics, even therapeutics. Along with Kersseboom, Süssmilch, Halley and Deparcieux, Bernoulli is considered one of the initiators of a new proposed method set on extracting complex medical inferences from a minimal set of consistently recorded data.
