Item Description: Gauthier-Villars, Paris, 1865. First edition. A very good copy in contemporary half calf of his sequel to the ' Géométrie Superiéure'. "Chasles wrote two textbooks for his course at the Sorbonne. The first of these, the 'Traité de Géométrie Supérieure (1852), is based on the elementary theories of the cross ratio, homographic ranges and pencils, and involution . The second text, the 'Traité des Sections Coniques' (1865), applied these methods to the study of the conic sections. This was a subject in which Chasles was interested throughout his life, and he incorporated many results of his own into the book . For example, he discussed the consequences of the projective characterization of a conic as the locus of points of intersection of corresponding lines in two homographic pencils with no invariant line, or dually as the envelope of lines joining corresponding points of two homographic ranges with no invariant point . The book also contains many of Chasles's results in what came to be called enumerative geometry. This subject concerns itself with the problem of determining how many figures of a certain type satisfy certain algebraic or geometric conditions. Chasles considered first the question of systems of conics satisfying four conditions and five conditions. He developed the theory of characteristics and of geometric substitution. The characteristics of a system of conics were defined as the number of conics passing through an arbitrary point and as the number of conics tangent to a given line. Chasles expressed many properties of his system in formulas involving these two numbers and then generalized his results by substituting polynomials in the characteristics for the original values." (DSB). 8vo, contemporary half calf, xi, (3) ,368 pp. and 5 folding plates. Bookseller Inventory # 2023

En este tratado sobre las curvas, La Chapelle aprovechó para introducir algunas disertaciones sobre cómo se habían producido históricamente algunos avances matemáticos necesarios para su aplicación a diferentes obras de ingenieria. Precisamente este recurso pedagógico fue elogiado en la extensa recensión con la que la publicación fue recibida en Le Journal des sçavans (1751) juin: 367-377, en la que el crítico debatió sobre los contenidos referidos a las parábolas, las hipérbolas y las cicloides.

Item Description: Paris, 1720. Full Calf. Book Condition: Very Good. 2nd Edition. a Very good copy of his second Treatise after this initial textbook on the Integral and Differential Calculus ca. 1696, the first edition appeared Post humously in 1706, this is the 2nd revised edition augmented. Thus. A very good copy. Montalant, Paris, 1720. Early half calf over marbled boards, with red morocco spine label. (8), 459 pp., with 33 numbered folding engraved plates, one full-page unnumbered plate, and 263 geometrical figures, as well as an engraved title vignette, an engraved headpiece at the top of the first page of text, and several woodcut head- and tail-pieces. 4to. First published in 1707 from a manuscript L'Hospital had left at his death in 1704, this is one of the first works in which algebra is applied to geometrical questions. Montucla considered this work a "Monument of Science." L'Hospital was a major figure in the early development of the calculus on the continent of Europe. He advanced its cause not only by his scientific works but also by his many contacts, including correspondence with Leibnitz, Bernouilli and with Chr. Huygens. Fontenelle tells us that it was L'Hospital who introduced Huygens to the new calculus. Poggendorf I, 1146; DSB VIII, p. 304-5. Size: 8vo. Bookseller Inventory # 009563

Item Description: Paris, Jean Boudot et Jean Boudet fils, 1707. 4to. Contemporary full calf. A bit of cracking to front hinges, so that cords are seen, but cover not loosening. Spine with 6 raised bands, richly gilt compartments. Wear to top of spine. Two small old paperlabels, one to upper compartment, one to frontcover. Covers slightly rubbed. (4),459,(5) pp. Large woodcut vignette on titlepage, 2 other vignettes, one engraved , one in woodcut. 32 folded engraved plates and one smaller folded plate (Fig. A). An old owners stamp on flyleaf. Internally clean and fine. A few tiny brownspots. Wide-margined and printed on good paper. Scarce first edition of l'Hôspital's second book - his second successfull textbook - the manuscript of which was left completed at his death in 1704. His first book "Analyse des infiniment petits pour l’intelligence des lignes courbes", 1696 was the first textbook of the differential calculus, and his name lives on in the name of the rule for finding the limiting value of a fraction whose numerator and denominator tend to zero. His mathyematical teacher was Jean Bernoulli.The year in which Newton published the anti-Cartesian "Arithmeticus" there appeared in France a conspicuously successfull textbook on Cartesian geometry along the lines of that of Guisnée. This was the "Traité Analytique des Sections Coniques". a book which contains less original material than that of Guisnée, but which is more extensive and closer to the modern manner of treatment. The work had been intended for publication at the time the authors famous calculus textbook appeared in 1696, but l'Hospital's illness apparently led to delay and it appeared posthumously in 1707. It is Cartesian in emphasis and although it consists of but one volume, follows generally the tripartite plan of Lahire and Ozanam: first an algebraic quasi-analytic treatment of the Conic Sections along the lines of Apollonian theory; then an analytic study of the loci, and finally a long section on the customary construction by conics of the roots of cubic and quartic polynominal equations. LHospital sometimes used two axes and seems to have recognized the interchangeability of these, but he betrays some hesitation. In general, L'Hospital (like Descartes) was more interested in analytic geometry as a measure of ecpressing loci algebraivcally than as a method of deriving the properties of a curve from its equation." (Carl B. Boyer "History of Analytic geometry", pp. 150-154. Bookseller Inventory # 48217
