Item Description: 1729. First Edition. "NEWTON, Isaac. The Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy. Translated into English by Andrew Motte. To which are added, the Laws of the Moon's Motion, according to Gravity [by John Machin]. London: Benjamin Motte, 1729. Two volumes. Octavo, contemporary full dark brown calf rebacked with original spines laid down, raised bands, red morocco spine labels. Housed together in a custom clamshell box. $39,500.First edition in English of Newton’s landmark Principia, published two years after his death, with scarce copper-engraved frontispieces and three headpieces by the translator Andrew Motte, 47 engraved folding geometric plates, and two folding tables.First published in Latin in 1687, "the Principia is generally described as the greatest work in the history of science. Copernicus, Galileo and Kepler had certainly shown the way; but where they described the phenomena they observed, Newton explained the underlying universal laws. The Principia provided the greatest synthesis of the cosmos, proving finally its physical unity. Newton showed that the important and dramatic aspects of nature that were subject to the universal law of gravitation could be explained, in mathematical terms, with a single physical theory. With him the separation of the natural and supernatural, of sublunar and superlunar worlds disappeared. The same laws of gravitation and motion rule everywhere; for the first time a single mathematical law could explain the motion of objects on earth as well as the phenomena of the heavens. The whole cosmos is composed of inter-connecting parts influencing each other according to these laws. It was this grand conception that produced a general revolution in human thought, equaled perhaps only by that following Darwin's Origin of Species [Newton] is generally regarded as one of the greatest mathematicians of all time and the founder of mathematical physics" (PMM 161).

Item Description: London Printed for Benjamin Motte, 1729. First English Edition of Newton’s "Principia" NEWTON, Sir Isaac. The Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy. Translated by Andrew Motte. To which are added The Laws of the Moon's Motion, according to Gravity. By John Machin. London: for Benjamin Motte, 1729. First edition in English. Two octavo volumes (198 x 118 mm). [xxviii], 320; [2], 393, [13, index], viii; 71, [1, errata] pp. Engraved frontispiece after and by A. Motte in each volume, forty-seven folding engraved plates, two folding letterpress tables, three engraved headpieces by Motte, numerous woodcut head- and tail-pieces and historiated and ornamental woodcut initials, section-title to Machin's "Laws of the Moon's Motion". Contemporary brown calf, rebacked to style. Decoratively blindstamped on covers, elaborately gilt-stamped on spine with five raised bands. Each volume with a red morocco spine label, lettered in gilt. Title-page of volume one supplied from another copy and professionally repaired along outer margin and 1 small hole also professionally repaired. Small wormhole to lower inner margin to the beginning pages of volume one, previous owner's contemporary small signature on title-page of volume two, otherwise very clean and tight. A Handome set. First English language edition of Newton's Principia, published two years after the author's death. Newton had seen three Latin editions through the press during his lifetime. The translator, Andrew Motte, was the brother of the publisher, and he provided the engravings for the frontispieces and three headpieces as well. The third book of the Mathematical Principles is actually a translation (presumably also by Motte) of Newton's Treatise of the System of the World; the first Latin and English publications of this work appeared the previous year. Appended to Newton's texts is a demonstration of their use, "The Laws of the Moon's Motion, according to Gravity," by John Machin. "The Principia is generally described as the greatest work in the history of science. Copernicus, Galileo and Kepler had certainly shown the way; but where they described the phenomena they observed, Newton explained the underlying universal laws. The Principia provided the greatest synthesis of the cosmos, proving finally its physical unity. Newton showed that the important and dramatic aspects of nature that were subject to the universal law of gravitation could be explained, in mathematical terms, with a single physical theory. With him the separation of the natural and supernatural, of sublunar and superlunar worlds disappeared. The same laws of gravitation and motion rule everywhere; for the first time a single mathematical law could explain the motion of objects on earth as well as the phenomena of the heavens.

Item Description: Benjamin Motte, London, 1729. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. Two volumes. 8vo (198 x 120 mm). Volume I with engraved frontispiece by A. Motte, [38], [1] 2-320 pp. and with 25 folding engraved plates (numbered I to XXV); volume II with engraved frontispiece by A. Motte, [2], 393, [13], viii, 71 [1] pp. and with 19 folding engraved plates (numbered I to XIX), 3 unnumbered additional folding engraved plates bound at the end, and 2 folding tables. Leaf a3 (pp. v-vi) is misbound before p. ii. In all, there are 2 frontispieces, 47 plates, 2 tables and 3 head-pieces by Motte, as called for. Both volumes bound in contemporary calf and are housed in a custom-made slipcase. There is some gilt ruling to spine and boards. All hinges are restored. Spine ends scuffed. Spine, boards and extremities rather worn. Both volumes are in perfectly matching original bindings with the spines untouched (not rebacked). Internally, both volumes are exceptionally crisp with only little occasional dust soiling or browning mainly at margins. The final plate XXV in volume I is creased, soiled and a bit frayed, the fore-edge of leaf K7 has a tear not affecting the text. The frontispiece of volume II has a tear at the fore-edge with little loss in blank margin, plate XII is a bit spotted, and there is an old repair of a short tear in plate XV. Otherwise, both volumes are internally completely untouched and in near fine condition, with full margins, and in its first bindings. Provenance: William Marrat* (inscribed on front pastedown of vol. I "W. Marrat, Boston, 1808"), Edward Page, Walkington (inscribed on vol. I title-page dated 27 March 1815). Occasional pencil marginalia by a learned mathematician, possibly by William Marrat in volume I. Geo(rge) Gouldworth (insribed on title-page of volume II, errata corrected in text by his hand). ---- Babson 20; Norman 1587; PMM 161 (1st Lat. ed.); Wallis 23. - FIRST EDITION IN ENGLISH OF NEWTON'S "PRINCIPIA", widely regarded to be the greatest work in the history of science. Motte's translation is highly regarded, and subsequent scholars have made revisions and corrections to the later editions, rather than undertake a new translation themselves. The first edition of Newton's Principia was in Latin, published in 1687. Two further London editions followed, in 1713 and 1726, in addition to a 1714 Amsterdam edition, before the revolutionary work (which Einstein described as "perhaps the greatest intellectual stride it has ever been granted for any man to make") became available to a wider lay audience with this handsomely printed English translation by Motte. It contains John Machin's attempt to rectify Newton's lunar theory, The Laws of the Moon's Motion, according to Gravity, here added to the end of the second volume. Motte's translation of Newton's System of the World occupies page 200 on in the second volume. Because the book saw wide circulation and is of enduring interest, with commensurately heavy use, copies as fresh as this in contemporary bindings are of genuine rarity. *William Marrat (1772-1852) worked as a printer and publisher while at Boston, Lincolnshire. In 1811-12 he, in conjunction with Pishey Thompson, ran The Enquirer, or Literary, Mathematical, and Philosophical Repository, Boston. At other times Marrat was a teacher of mathematics, in Lincolnshire and elsewhere. He lived in New York from 1817 to 1820, and edited there The Scientific Journal (imprint "Perth Amboy, N. J. and New York", 1818, nine numbers). He returned to England and settled at Liverpool in 1821. George Boole taught at his school in 1833. From 1833 to 1836 Marrat was mathematical tutor in a school at Exeter. He was for fifty years a contributor to mathematical serials, including The Ladies' Diary and The Gentlemen's Diary, The Receptacle, The Student, and the Leeds Correspondent. His first book was An Introduction to the Theory and Practice of Mechanics, Boston, 1810, pp. 468. See more images on our website. Bookseller Inventory # 002406

Item Description: Benjamin Motte, London, 1729. First edition in English of Isaac Newton's Principia. Octavo, two volumes. Bound in full calf, gilt titles and stamping to the spine. With forty-six folding engraved plates and two folding charts. A few leaves with light foxing, pages lightly toned; an excellent near fine example of this landmark work. "Newton’s Principia is generally described as the greatest work in the history of science. Copernicus, Galileo and Kepler had certainly shown the way; but where they described the phenomena they observed, Newton explained the underlying universal laws. The Principia provided the greatest synthesis of the cosmos, proving finally its physical unity. Newton showed that the important and dramatic aspects of nature that were subject to the universal law of gravitation could be explained, in mathematical terms, with a single physical theory. With him the separation of the natural and supernatural, of sublunar and superlunar worlds disappeared. The same laws of gravitation and motion rule everywhere; for the first time a single mathematical law could explain the motion of objects on earth as well as the phenomena of the heavens. The whole cosmos is composed of inter-connecting parts influencing each other according to these laws. It was this grand conception that produced a general revolution in human thought, equaled perhaps only by that following Darwin’s Origin of Species [Newton] is generally regarded as one of the greatest mathematicians of all time and the founder of mathematical physics" (PMM 161). "It is perhaps the greatest intellectual stride that it has ever been granted to any man to make" (Einstein). Bookseller Inventory # 3760
