About this Item

With 1 folding plate. Original publisher's cloth, spine expertly repaired, an almost fine copy from the library of George Howard Darwin (1845-1912) with his signature dated Oct., 1865 on the paste-down. Second edition, revised (first printed in 1859). "Boole's scientific writings consist of some fifty papers, two textbooks, and two volumes dealing with mathematical logic. The two textbooks (including the present one) remained in use in the United Kingdom until the end of the century. They contain much of Boole's original work, reproducing and extending material published in his research papers" (DSB, II, p. 294).George Darwin (1845-1912) was the second son of Charles Darwin and Emma Wedgwood. Sent to a school run by the Rev Charles Pritchard who later became the Savilian Professor of Astronomy at Oxford, Darwin won a scholarship to study at Trinity College, Cambridge, where he also excelled. Like many other top graduates from Cambridge, he entered the legal profession, but returned to Cambridge, becoming Plumian professor of astronomy and experimental philosophy there in 1883. His main interest was tidal effects on the planets. He was the first to apply mathematical techniques to study the evolution of the Sun-Earth-Moon system. Darwin was President of the Royal Astronomical Society in 1899-1900 and won the Gold Medal from that Society 1892. Bookseller Inventory # 10999
