About this Item

Facsimile Reprint of original 1749 edition -- 'a masterly work' (D.S.B. I: 113). xxxviii, 1 leaf, 184 pp; 4 plates (containing 66 figs.). Leatherette. Near Fine. 'During the late 1740's, d'Alembert, Clairaut, and Euler were all working on the famous three-body problem, with varying success. D'Alembert's interest in celestial mechanics thus led him, in 1749, to published a masterly work, the Recherches sur la précession des equinoxes et sur la nutation de la terre. The precession of equinoxes, a problem previously attacked by Clairaut, was very difficult. D'Alembert's method was similar to Clairaut's, but he employed more terms in his integration of the equation of motion and arrived at a solution more in accord with the observed motion of the earth. He was rightly proud of his book' (D.S.B. I: 113). Bookseller Inventory # D00105
