About this Item: London : Printed for T. Cadell, in the Strand, M. DCC. LXXXIV, 1784. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. First Edition. [Newtonian Physics - The History of Science] Bound in fine modern cloth. Collated: vi, 265, [3] pages. In good condition internally, with some offsetting, spotting. George Atwood was a brilliant English mathematician, renowned chess player, and frequent contributor to the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Academy. This, his first work, helped revive the teaching of natural philosophy at Cambridge. As a fellow and tutor at the College, Atwood was tasked with introducing students to Newtonian physics. To aid his instruction, and dismiss persistent erroneous ideas on inertia and the living force of matter, Atwood later invented a machine to demonstrate Newton's Second Law of Motion. His lectures were popular, and so he published them in 1776. In his lectures Atwood "demonstrated elementary mechanics and hydrostatics with pulleys, pendulums, and air-pumps, as well as electricity, magnetism, and optics, including Leonhard Euler's principles of achromatic lenses. He also taught astronomy, mentioning recent surveys of the earth's density by the mathematician Charles Hutton and the astronomer royal Nevil Maskelyne, plus Maskelyne's favoured lunar method for longitude." - DNB. This edition is the revised and substantially enlarged version of a Atwood's course outline. DSB I, 326-27. Seller Inventory # 1912030018

Benjamin Martin, 1704-1782, was a lexicographer, scientist, and instrument maker, and an early supporter of the Newtonian system. This book was published shortly after he moved to Fleet Street from Chichester, where he had kept a school while designing and building optical instruments - including a pocket reflecting microscope which he sold for a guinea. Martin found success as a scientific instrument maker and lecturer, and published on a range of subjects that interested him. This book includes sections on physics, mechanics, hydrostatics, hydraulics, pneumatics, phonics, light and colours, optics, astronomy, and geography. Seller Inventory # 75876
