Item Description: London Apud Guil. & Joh. Innys, 1726. Newton's "Principia"- Large Paper Copy NEWTON, Sir Isaac. Philosophiæ naturalis principia mathematica. Editio tertia aucta & emendata. London: Apud Guil. & Joh. Innys, 1726. Third edition. One of 200 Large-Paper copies on "General Royal paper with the "CC" watermark. Quarto (28.9 x 22.2 cm). [34], 530, [6, index] pp. With engraved frontispiece portrait and numerous diagrams. Bound without rear ad, but with initial privilege leaf and half-title leaf. Collates as copy 2 of Babson. Contemporary full vellum, front board expertly reattached. Black calf spine label, lettered in gilt. Faint dampstain at upper corner of initial leaves. A very nice large, clean copy. "This edition was the last published during the authorís lifetime and the basis of all subsequent editions. It was edited by Henry Pemberton, M.D., F.R.S., and contains a new preface by Newton and a large number of alterations, the most important being the scholium on fluxions, in which Leibnitz had been mentioned by name. This had been considered an acknowledgement of Leibnitzís independent discovery of the calculus. In omitting Leibnitzís name in this edition, Newton was criticized as taking advantage of an opponent whose death had prevented any reply" (Babson, p. 12). Third edition of "the greatest work in the history of science" (Printing and the Mind of Man). In the Principia, Newton formulated the three laws of motion from which he derived the principle of universal gravitation, "wherein all bodies, of whatever mass, attract one another in proportion to their masses and in inverse ratio as the square of the distance between them. This applies to dust particles as to the mightiest celestial bodies" (Dibner). "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 great 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, within a single physical theory.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, equalled perhaps only by that following Darwinís Origin of Species" (Printing and the Mind of Man 161, describing the first edition).

Item Description: [Cornelius Crownfield at the University Press], Cambridge, 1713. The important second edition of ?the greatest work in the history of science? (PMM). This is a fine copy in an unrestored contemporary binding. The Principia elucidates the universal physical laws of gravitation and motion which lie behind phenomena described by Newton's predecessors Copernicus, Galileo and Kepler. Newton establishes the mathematical basis for the motion of bodies in unresisting media (the law of inertia); the motion of fluids and the effect of friction on bodies moving through fluids; and, most importantly, sets forth the law of universal gravitation and its unifying role in the cosmos. ?For the first time a single mathematical law could explain the motion of objects on earth as well as the phenomena of the heavens ? It was this grand conception that produced a general revolution in human thought, equalled perhaps only by that following Darwin's Origin of Species? (PMM). Published twenty-six years after the first, this second edition of Newton?s Principia was printed at the Cambridge University Press, which Richard Bentley had recently revived. Edited by Roger Cotes (1682-1716), it contains his important preface in which he attacks the Cartesian philosophy ?and refutes an assertion that Newton?s theory of attraction is a causa occulta? (Babson). There is also a second preface by Newton, and substantial additions, the chapters on the lunar theory and the theory of comets being much enlarged. But the most important addition is the Scholium generale, which appears here in print for the first time. ?The General Scholium, added to the Principia in 1713, is probably Newton?s most famous writing ? In this text, Newton not only challenges the natural philosophy of Descartes, counters criticism levelled against him by Leibniz and appeals for universal gravitation and an inductive method, but he embeds a subversive attack on the doctrine of the Trinity, which he believed was a fourth-century corruption of Christianity? (The Newton Project).?In 1709 Cotes became heavily involved in the preparation of the second edition of Newton?s great work on universal gravitation, the Philosophiae naturalis principia mathematica. The first edition of 1687 had few copies printed [about 250]. In 1694 Newton did further work on his lunar and planetary theories, but illness and a dispute with Flamsteed postponed any further publication. Newton subsequently became master of the mint and had virtually retired from scientific work when Bentley persuaded him to prepare a second edition, suggesting Cotes as supervisor of the work.?Newton at first had a rather casual approach to the revision, but Cotes took the work very seriously. Gradually, Newton was coaxed into a similar enthusiasm; and the two collaborated closely on the revision, which took three and a half years to complete. The edition was limited to only 750 copies, and a pirated version printed in Amsterdam [in 1714] met the total demand? (DSB, under Cotes)?The most significant feature remains the number of changes introduced into the edition. Rouse Ball (An Essay on Newton?s ?Principia,? 1893) noted that, of the 494 pages of Principia (1687), ?397 are more or less modified in the second edition.? Changes include ?the propositions on the resistance of fluids, Book II, section VII props 34 - 40; the lunar theory in Book III; the propositions on the precession of the equinoxes, Book III. prop. 39; and the propositions on the theory of comets, Book III, props. 41, 42? In addition there was a completely new Scholium generale. Also included for the first time were a table of contents (Index capitum totius opera) which did no more than list the section headings of the first two books, and a rather sketchy index (Index rerum alphabeticus). Cotes also provided an important preface in which he undertook to explain and defend Newton's account of gravity? (Gjertsen, Newton Handbook, pp. 475-6).?When the question of a Preface arose early in 1713, Cotes was initially in some doubt what to include. Bookseller Inventory # 4065

Item Description: [Cornelius Crownfield], Cambridge, 1713. The second edition, expanded and corrected, and the first to include the General Scholium in which Newton gives a general resumé of the work. One of about 750 copies printed, of which 250 were sent to Holland and France. Engraved vignette on title, one folding engraved plate, and numerous woodcut diagrams and illustrations in the text. 14 leaves, 484, [8] pp. 1 vols. 4to. The Second Principia. The critical second edition of what is incontestably the single most important scientific work ever published, one which laid the foundations for modern physics. Published in Newton's lifetime by his friend and collaborater, Roger Cotes (1682-1716), this edition contains for the first time Cotes' Preface which lays out Newton's method, a 7 pp. Index, and most importantly, Newton's own celebrated conclusion entitled SCHOLIUM GENERALE (pp. 481-484), written in response to the objections of Berkeley and Leibniz, in which the author expresses the religious conceptions underlying and supporting his empirical-mathematical construct."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 great 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, within a single physical theory. With him the separation of 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" (PMM).

Item Description: Amsterdam: Sumptibus Societas, 1723, 1723. Quarto (255 x 192 mm). Contemporary vellum over boards, manuscript titling to spine, speckled edges. Spine evenly toned, a few old stains and some discolouration, old stain at the head of a number of leaves. A very good copy in a plain contemporary binding. Title page printed in red & black, engraved vignette to title page, 3 engraved folding plates, numerous woodcut diagrams in the text. First edition to combine the Principia with the Analysis per Quantitatum Series, Fluxiones ac Differentias (1711), Newton's first independent treatise on mathematics, containing his important developments of calculus - here with a separate title page, pagination, and index; second Amsterdam edition of the Principia, with the plates and diagrams re-engraved. The Principia, first published in 1687, is the "greatest work in the history of science" (PMM) in which Newton (1642-1727) laid out in mathematical terms the principles of time, force and motion that explained a wide range of previously unrelated phenomena and made Newton an international leader in scientific research. His theories provided the basis for the development of modern physical science. "Copernicus, Gallileo and Kepler had certainly shown the way; but where they describe the phenomena they observed, Newton explained the underlaying universal laws. The Principia provided the great synthesis of the cosmos, proving finally its physical unity. Newton showed that the important and dramatic aspects of nature that were subject to the gravitation law could be explained, in mathematical terms, within a single physical theory. 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, equalled perhaps only by that following Darwin's Origin of Species" (ibid). An appealing copy with a contemporary ducal provenance: armorial bookplate of Giambattista de Mari, prince of Acquaviva; the de Mari were a prominent Genoese family. Not in Babson; Gray 12; Printing and the Mind of Man 171 (the first edition of 1687). Bookseller Inventory # 111756

The first Jesuits' edition was published in Geneva in 1739-1742 and the second in 1760. These so-called Jesuits' editions (so-called because the editors were really Minims) are valued because of their copious commentary, and also because they contain additional works by Bernoully, Maclarin, and Euler which represent all that was done on the theory of tides between the publication of Newton's Principia and the investigations of Laplace.
