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 author’s 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 Leibnitz’s independent discovery of the calculus. In omitting Leibnitz’s 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 Darwin’s Origin of Species" (Printing and the Mind of Man 161, describing the first edition).

Item Description: Cambridge (University Press) 1713, 1713. The second edition, the first to include the General Scholium in which Newton gives a general resume 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. Large 4to, bound in full English contemporary polished calf, the spine fully gilt and very handsome, morocco lettering label gilt, compartments handsomely gilt between raised bands of the spine. 14 leaves, 484, [8]. A very handsome copy, the back expertly and exquisitely restored to style, title with usual offset from binding turn-ins in fore-margin, fore-margin of title very slightly frayed, small neat repair to upper inner corner of title. ONE OF THE GREATEST BOOKS EVER PENNED, AND A FOUNDATION OF ALL MODERN SCIENCE. THE CORNERSTONE TREATISE ON DYNAMICS AND GRAVITATION, "THE MOST INFLUENTIAL SCIENTIFIC PUBLICATION OF THE 17TH CENTURY" (Horblit) A pleasing and handsome copy of the PRINCIPIA. "Richard Bentley, Master of Trinity College, was instrumental in bringing out this second edition, which was edited by Roger Cotes, F.R.S. In his important preface, Cotes attacks the Cartesian philosophy then still in vogue in the universities, and refutes an assertion that Newton's theory of attraction is a causa occulta. It contains a second preface by Newton and considerable additions, the chapters on the lunar theory and the theory of comets being much enlarged" (- Babson 12). Newton, in the PRINCIPIA, stated the three laws of motion that establish the relationship of mass, force, and direction; he also discussed the movement of bodies through gases and liquids, and defined mass and force and the corpuscular theory of light. But most importantly, he established the principal of universal gravitation and the motion of the planets. "Copernicus, Newton, and Einstein are the three corner-stones of our conception of the universe. Few could grasp Newton's reasoning at the time, and his fame was spread on the Continent by Voltaire's ELEMENS DE LA PHILOSOPHIE DE NEUTON, 1738" (PMM). Roger Cotes, 1682-1716, "was not only able enough to see where Principia could be improved, but also able to criticise Newton and correct his errors without ever antagonising him - no mean feat . [Cotes’s Preface contains] a strong attack against Cartesian physics in general and the vortex theory of planetary motion in particular . The most significant feature remains the number of changes introduced into this edition [including] the propositions on the resistance of fluids, the lunar theory, the procession of the equinoxes, the theory of comets . On [Cotes’s] death Newton bestowed on him the tribute he had denied him in his life: if he had lived we might have known something". Bookseller Inventory # 19328

LARGE PAPER COPY. 4to (282x222 mm), [36], 530, [8] pp., including half-title, engraved frontispiece portrait by George Vertue facing title, dedication leaf, Halley's commendatory verse leaf, privilege leaf, ad leaf at end; numerous woodcut diagrams and the engraving on p. 506.

Very minor occasional spotting and marginal soiling, paper flaw to fore-margin of Rrr1-2, pages 225 to 232 misbound after p.240, index leaf 3y4 re-attached, closed tear at gutter of leaves Yyy1-4. An outstanding, clean and bright copy. ---- PMM 161 (describing the first edition); Babson 13; Gray 9; Wallis 9; Todd E3(2); HBS 64483. - The stated third edition, this one of the 200 large-paper copies on "Writing Royal Paper" with the "CC" watermark. According to W.B.Todd, Bibliography of the Principia, p.855, this is the second impression, determined by the progressive wearing of type fractures and dislocations. The Babson catalogue notes that the license leaf had no assigned signature location, and is found at various places in copies of the regular edition. This edition was the last published during the author's lifetime and is the basis for all subsequent editions. The editor was Henry Pemberton, M.D., F.R.S., and this recension of the text contains a new preface by Newton and a large number of alterations. The most important of these is in the scholium on fluxions, in which Leibnitz had been mentioned by name in the earlier editions. His name is absent here, leading to claims that Newton was avoiding sharing credit for the development of calculus with his Continental rival. Bookseller Inventory # 002023

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: Sumptibus Societatis, Amstælodami, 1714. In 4° (mm 260x205). Pagg. (28), 484, (8). Frontespizio in rosso e nero con vignetta allegorica in rame, con putti e motto "Vis Unita Major". Firma di possesso non identificabile; una tavola ripiegata in rame f.t. raffigurante l'orbita della cometa, che secondo le tesi di Newton poteva essere non solo ellittica, ma anche iperbolica e parabolica. Centinaia di diagrammi silografici nel testo. Alle prime carte dedica a Carlo II, segue un poemetto di E.D. Halley a Newton e due prefazioni di Newton, datate "Londini, May 8 1686" e "Mar. 28 1713"; poi la prefazione editoriale curata da Roger Cotes professore di astronomia e filosofia sperimentale del Trinity College, datata "Cantabrigiae Maii 12. 1713" e infine lo "Index Capitum totius operis". Pergamena rigida coeva con unghie, titolo su tassello in oro al dorso, tagli blu. Seconda edizione, prima tiratura di Amsterdam (una seconda olandese fu pubblicata nel 1723) editata mentre Newton lavorava ancora ai suoi studi, redatta sulla seconda del 1713, la prima a contenere lo "Scholium generale" scritto in risposta alle obiezioni di Berkeley e Leibniz, ma rivista e corretta interamente ad Amsterdam; appaiono per la prima volta aggiunte e correzioni dell'A. ed anche le incisioni vengono eseguite e aggiunte apposta per questa edizione.L'opera è suddivisa in tre libri, nei primi due tratta del moto dei corpi e dei mezzi di contrasto, quali aria e acqua; nel terzo libro, chiamato Sul sistema del mondo, Newton espone la legge di gravitazione universale che agisce, secondo l'A. in ogni luogo e per ogni corpo. Nei Principia Newton compie l'unificazione tra la fisica galileiana e l'astronomia di Keplero. Infatti lo scienziato inglese riconduce a un'unica causa la legge di gravitazione universale le leggi di Keplero e quelle della caduta dei gravi. Questo risultato ha un'importanza cruciale in quanto Newton unifica i moti del cielo e della terra aprendo così la via a una moltitudine di applicazioni che saranno sviluppate da molti altri scienziati in avvenire. Celebri sono le teorie dei moti lunari, delle maree e dei pianeti.Bell'esemplare che presenta lievi tracce d'ossidazione internamente e lievi fioriture.

Item Description: 1723. NEWTON, Isaac. Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica. Amsterdam: Sumptibus Societatis, 1723. Quarto, contemporary full paneled brown calf rebacked and recornered in elaborately gilt-decorated calf, raised bands, red morocco spine label. $15,000.Second Amsterdam edition (the second continental printing), based upon the 1713 second edition, with the addition of the Analysis per Quantitatum Series, Fluxiones, Ac Differentias: cum Enumerationed Linerum Tertii Ordinis, in contemporary paneled calf boards."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". [F]or 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, equaled perhaps only by that following Darwin's Origin of Species" (PMM 161). Three authorized editions of Newton's Principia mathematica were issued during his lifetime, but demand for the work was so great on the Continent that two unauthorized reprints were also published in Amsterdam in 1714 and 1723. "These Amsterdam reprints were a major undertaking, requiring the cutting of new wood-blocks for the figures and a new setting of type. The second reprint (1723) contains not only four tracts by Newton and W. Jones's 'Praefatio Editoris,' but also extracts from four letters of Newton's. These tracts are: De analysi per aequationes infinitas (first published by Jones in 1711), De quadratura curvarum and Enumeratio linearum tertii ordinis (published with the Opticks in 1704 and the Optice in 1706, but eliminated from the second English edition of the Opticks in 1717/18), and the Methodus differentialis. But this whole collection""the four tracts, the extracts from Newton's letters, and Jones's Praefatio""was merely a reprint, without alteration, of a collection that was first published as a small book in London in 1711. It was reissued separately in Amsterdam in 1723 as well as being included as a supplement to the reprint of the Principia. How curious indeed that Newton's long-cherished plan of publishing De quadratura together with the Principia should have been realized only in this presumably unauthorized Amsterdam reprint of 1723!" (Cohen, Introduction to Newton's Principia, 257). "This edition re-set, with the plate and diagrams re-engraved. In the Analysis per Quantitatum series, head and tail-pieces and woodcut initials are used. One tail-piece used several times has in the oval centre the initials G.W. with the 4 mark" (Gray, 10). Wallis 12. Extensive notes and underlining to Preface.Interior generally quite clean, expert restoration to contemporary paneled calf boards. An extremely good copy. Bookseller Inventory # 102131

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.

Titres en rouge et noir ornés d'une vignette gravée en taille-douce, XXXV pp., (1) p., 548 pp.; (4) ff., 422 pp., (1) f.; (4) ff., XXVIII-374 pp., (2) ff. blancs, VIII pp., pp. 375 à 703, plusieurs centaines de fig. gravées sur bois dans le texte. Rousseurs uniformes, raccommodage à la p. 183 du tome III, petits manques dans les marges des premiers ff. du tome I. Première édition des Principia avec le commentaire des pères François Jacquier et Thomas Le Seur, improprement appelée "édition des jésuites" (alors que les deux auteurs étaient minimes). Cette édition monumentale, dont le commentaire imprimé en bas de page est plus long que le texte de Newton proprement dit, est d'une importance capitale pour l'histoire de la propagation des théories newtoniennes en Europe. Les deux pères minimes y ont inséré des explications et des développements judicieux qui en firent l'édition de référence des Principia durant le XVIIIe s. C'est dans cette édition que d'Alembert lut les Principia. On sait par ailleurs que le père Jacquier aida la marquise du Châtelet pour sa traduction française des Principia. Elle comprend en outre trois traités complémentaires sur les phénomènes des marées insérés à la fin du tome III : le Traité sur le flux et reflux de la mer (par Daniel Bernoully), le De causa physica fluxus et refluxus maris (par D. Mac Laurin) et l'Inquisitio physica in causam fluxus ac refluxus maris (par D. Euler). Gray, 11; Graesse IV, 663. Bookseller Inventory # 18334

Pleine basane de l'époque, dos à cinq nerfs orné et doré, manquent une pièce de titre et une pièce de tomaison, tranches rouges. Sans les gardes volantes. Trois volumes in quarto (235x188 mm), xxxii-548 / (8)-422-(2 bl.) / (8)-xxviii-[1]-376; [375-]536; viii [recte vi], [537]-703 pages Reliures frottées, coiffes et coins usés. Corps d'ouvrage frais malgré quelques cahiers roussis et traces de mouillures marginales sur quelques feuillets. Les Principia de Newton sont considérés comme l'ouvrage le plus important de l'histoire des science. Seconde édition dite "des jésuites", basée sur l'édition de 1739-1742, avec quelques corrections et les modifications apportées au texte. Cette édition est estimée pour les commentaires abondants apportés par ses rédacteurs, Le Seur et Jacquier. Il contient également dans le volume trois, des travaux importants, qui ont reçu le prix de l'Académie française en 1724 pour résoudre le problème du mouvement des marées par la théorie de la gravité : - Traité sur le flux et reflux de la Mer par Daniel Bernoulli (pages 133-246 ). - Causa de Physica Fluxus et Refluxus Maris par Colin Maclaurin (pages 247-282.). - Inquisitio Physica dans Causam Fluxus ac Refluxus Maris par Léonard Euler (pages 283-374). Ces travaux représentent tout ce qui a été fait sur la théorie des marées entre la publication des Principia de Newton et les travaux de Laplace. (Babson catalogue). Réédité cinq fois, l'édition jésuite a tellement dominé le marché qu'aucune autre édition latine des Principia n'a été publiée entre la troisième édition de 1726 et celle de Koyré et Cohen en 1972.

Modern tan calf with spine in 6 compartments, raised bands with red and black labels and gilt decorations, simple gold borders on front and rear panels, and edge decorations. Presents very nicely on the shelf. Full calf. The first Glasgow re-issue of the 1739 Jesuits' edition, edited by John Martin Frederick Wright. 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.

Item Description: Harvard University Press, Cambridge, 1972. hardcover. Book Condition: near fine. Dust Jacket Condition: very good(+). Third edition of Newton's masterpiece."The most influential scientific publication of the 17th century." -Horblit. "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 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. 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. Reprint of the third edition (1726) with Variant Readings. Edited by Alexandre Koyre and I. Bernard Cohen & Anne Whitman. 2 volumes.
