Item Description: Sold by Mr. Watkins; Mr. Ayscough optical instrument-makers; Messrs. Heath and Wing; Mr. Bennet mathematical instrument-makers; and by the author London, 1758. First edition. 4to., (28.3 x 22.5 cm). 26pp., 42 engraved plates with moving parts, modern quarter calf, all plates fine, clean, with no tears or repairs, a fine copy. Fine copy of this rare first edition. ESTC online lists only 6 copies: British Library; Kings College London; Houghton Library, Harvard; Columbia University Libraries, New York; Sterling Memorial Library, Yale; Fisher Library, Sydney. John Cowley was a leading mathematician of his day. He became professor of mathematics at the Royal Military Academy, Woolwich in 1761, and produced two remarkable books dealing with Euclidean geometry. The first of these appeared in 1752 and provides a way of "treat[ing] of solids and their sections, by laying before them [young students] a more natural and familiar representation of those bodies, than can be obtained from perspective pictures or draughts delineated upon a plane or flat surface . I come now . to lay before the public a new performance, the chief scope of which is to produce mechanical representations of solids and their sections, for the use of such as would obtain just ideas of those bodies . without any occasion for that great attention which is absolutely requisite to be employed by the mind, when contemplating on the nature and description of those bodies, while expressed only by lines drawn according to the rules of perspective; which is an arduous task." (Preface). This work anticipates the work of others such as Oliver Byrne, who nearly 100 years later, sought to provide a commentary on Euclid using visual methods. Bookseller Inventory # 85501

Rebound to style in dark blue half calf, spine gilt in compartments, red morocco labels, raised bands, marbled paper sides, brown endpapers. Board edges lightly rubbed, spotting and offsetting as virtually always with this book. A very good copy. Geometric diagrams printed in red, blue and yellow; printed in Caslon old-face type with ornamental initials by C. Whittingham of Chiswick. First edition of this celebrated book, the most interesting and inventive attempt to revisualise the classic ur-text of geometry by printing the diagrams in various colours, a method which stretched the printers' skills to their utmost. Oliver Byrne (c.1810–c.1890) is described on the title page as "Surveyor of Her Majesty's Settlements in the Falkland Islands and Author of Numerous Mathematical Works". He was appointed professor of mathematics, at the College for Civil Engineering, Putney, at the age of 20. The 1871 census lists his place of birth as Leyden, Holland.

Item Description: 1781. EUCLID. The Elements of Euclid, viz. The First Six books, Together with the Eleventh and Twelfthe. In this Edition, the Errors, by which Theon, or others, have long ago Vitiated these Books, are Corrected, And some of Euclid's Demonstrations are Restored. By Robert Simson, M.D. Professor of Mathematics in the University of Glassgow. [8], 466, [2], 38 pp. Illustrated with 3 folding engraved plates, numerous woodcut text figs. 8vo., 205 x 130 mm, bound in contemporary English full calf, gilt-ruled spine, gilt- stamped red morocco spine label. Glasgow: Andrew Foulis, 1781. A handsome octavo version of The Elements of Euclid printed by the famous Glasgow University printers Robert (1707-76) and Andrew Foulis (1712-75) first issued in quarto in 1756. Best known for their simple yet elegant printings of carefully edited classics, this work is no exception. Dr. Robert Simson's corrections and additions to Theon and early editors in this edition were among the most important in clarifying Euclid's theorems. In addition, Simson's demonstrations were among the most clearly illustrated. Simple in-text woodcut diagrams appear next to the geometrical ideas they highlight in a harmonious mise en page. Some slight wear to the binding, still a fine crisp copy, and presumably one of the copies which Gaskell referes to as being printed on slightly better paper. PROVENANCE: Andras Gédéon with his ex-libris on front paste-down. In 2006 Gédéon published a book entitled: Science and Technology in Medicine: Based on Ninety-nine Landmark Publications form Five Centuries using his own library as source material. Gaskell 648.
