EXCERPT: Preface - This book is intended for a three-semester or four-quarter course in calculus for students of science, engineering, mathematics, and business. It reflects several of my more strongly held, though hardly original, viewpoints: that a calculus text should present the trigonometric functions as early as possible; that it should motivate and explain the idea of a limit in a manner that is as simple as possible; and that there should be an abundance of, and emphasis on, applications . . . Each chapter begins with its own table of contents and introduction to the material covered in that chapter and ends with a Chapter Test, which includes true-false and fill-in-the-blanks questions. Most sections conclude with brief informal discussions labelled Remarks. These discussions include possible applications of the mathematics just covered, a little bit of history, or a few words of caution to the student on possible misinterpretations or unwarranted generalizations of definitions and theorems. Illustrations are used generously throughout the text (there are approximately 1200). Most exercise sets are massive (with over 6000 problems in the text) and include the usual abundance of drill problems along with Miscellaneous Problems, which are either more challenging in nature or expound on material not formally presented. Exercise sets include calculator Problems, which are intended to be done on a calculator or computer. Answers (including graphs) to odd-numbered problems are included in the text. A complete solutions manual for the instructor and a student solutions manual, which provides a detailed solution to every fourth problem, are available.... First Edition 3rd Printing. Hard Cover. Good/No Jacket (As Issued). Illus. by J&R Services. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall.

    Methodus Inveniendi Lineas Curvas Maximi Minimive proprietate gaudentes, sive Solutio Problematis Isoperimetrici Latissimo sensu accepti by EULER, Leonhard

    Engraved vignette on title & five folding engraved plates. Title in red & black. 1 p.l., 322 pp., 1 leaf of instructions to binder. Large 4to, cont. mottled calf (foot of upper joint carefully repaired), spine richly gilt, red morocco lettering piece on spine. Lausanne & Geneva: M.M. Bousquet, 1744. First edition of the work which created the calculus of variations. This book, which displayed "an amount of mathematical genius seldom rivalled, contained his researches on the calculus of variation to the invention of which Euler was led by the study of the researches of Johann and Jakob Bernoulli...The study of isoperimetrical curves, the brachistochrone in a resisting medium and the theory of geodesics, previously treated by the elder Bernoullis and others, led to the creation of this new branch of mathematics, the Calculus of Variations. His method was essentially geometrical, which makes the solution of the simpler problems very clear."-Cajori, A History of Mathematics, p. 234. Fine large copy from the library of Haskell F. Norman with bookplate. ❧ Dibner 111. D.S.B., IV, p. 479. Evans, First Editions of Epochal Achievements in the History of Science (1934), 9. Horblit 28. Roberts & Trent, Bibliotheca Mechanica, p. 104-"For the purposes of mechanics, the significance of this work lies in the appendix, which deals with geometrical forms of elastic curves...The present work illustrates the first solution to the problem of the buckling of a column."

    Consideration of Various Points of Analysis...from the Philosophical Transactions by HERSCHEL, John Frederick William

    Several diagrams in the text. 1 p.l., 33 (i.e. 29) pp. Large 4to, orig. blue wrappers, uncut. London: W. Bulmer, 1814. First separate edition, with new pagination. This offprint belonged to Carl Friedrich Gauss, with the "Gauss-Bibliothek" stamp on the title. This copy was no doubt sent by Herschel to Europe's leading mathematician. The present work is an important contribution to mathematical notation by Herschel, who was, with Charles Babbage and George Peacock, a founder of the famous Analytical Society, a group of Cambridge mathematical reformers. They wanted to leave behind the fluxional, Newtonian notation so prevalent in 18th-century Britain and embrace the algebraically based conception of the calculus developed by Lagrange. In this work, Herschel professes "his belief in the fruitfulness of the method of separating the symbols of operation from those of quantity."-S.E. Despeaux, "Very Full of Symbols" in Episodes in the History of Modern Algebra (1800-1950), (2007), ed. by J.J. Gray & K.H. Parshall, p. 54. Fine copy and rare. With the stamp of the Royal Observatory at Göttingen on upper wrapper (with release stamp on front paste-down endpaper) and title.
