    Analytic Geometry by Gordon Fuller

    This book is in good condition. There is minimal wear on the front, back, edges, and spine of the cover boards. There is almost no bumping and fraying on the cover boards. The pages are starting to yellow, but are not tanning, and the pages are clear of any markings. "For several centuries geometry and algebra developed slowly, bit by bit, as distinct mathematical disciplines. In 1637, however a French mathematician and philosopher, Rene Descartes, published his La Geometrie, which introduced a device for unifying these two branches of mathematics. The basic feature of this new process, now called analytic geometry, is the use of a coordinate system. By means of coordinate systems algebraic methods can be applied powerfully in the study of geometry, and perhaps of still greater importance is the advantage accuring to algebra by graphical representation of algebraic equations. Indeed, Descartes' remarkable contribution paved the way for rapid and far-reaching developments in mathematics, and analytic geometry continues to be of great value in mathematical investigations...." - Chapter One from Analytic Geometry

    Shuki sanpo [trans.: Selected Jewels of Mathematical Method] by [ARIMA, Yoriyuki]

    Many woodcut illus. & diagrams in the text. 43; 44; 39; 49; 55 folding leaves. Five vols. 8vo, orig. patterned blue wrappers, orig. block-printed title labels on upper covers, new stitching. Edo: Suharaya Mohei, 1769. First edition of this important and influential mathematical book. "The Seki school was the most popular of the many schools of mathematics in Japan. Yoriyuki Arima (1714-1783), Lord of Kurume, was one of its leaders and was the first to publish its secret theories of algebra. Arima personifies the anomaly of a member of a hereditary warrior class drawn, in a time of enforced peace, to mathematics of the mostly highly abstract and purely aesthetic sort; he, too, had been a pupil of Yamaji, and he took Fujita under his protection and assisted him in the publication of Seiyo sampo. Arima's own Shuki sampo was as popular in its time as Fujita's work, and Aida drew heavily upon both books."-D.S.B., I. p. 83. In this work, Arima "described 150 problems chosen from all fields of wasan research in the Seki tradition. Included were problem-solving procedures - though he gave no theoretical explanations of them. This was the first printed book in which one could find, for instance, a detailed description of Seki's written algebra, called tenzanjutsu. Thenceforth tenzanjutsu became a standard working tool of wasan students in general - almost a full century after its invention by Seki."-Sugimoto & Swain, Science & Culture in Traditional Japan, pp. 365-66. In this work, Arima gave the value of pi which was correct to 29 decimal places. The problems relate to indeterminate equations, the various roots of an equation, the application of algebra to geometry, the inscription of spheres within spheres, maxima and minima, binomial series, and stereometry. While this book was published under the name of Bunkei Toyota, it was actually written by Arima. ❧ Smith, History of Mathematics, Vol. I, pp. 536-37.

    Euclidis Elementorum Libri XV. Accessit XVI. de Solidorum Regularium comparatione. Omnes perspicuis Demonstrationibus, accuratisque Scholiis illustrati. Auctore Christophoro Clavio.. by EUCLID

    Titles within architectural woodcut borders & numerous woodcuts in the text. 20 p.l., 331, [1] leaves, one blank leaf; 300 leaves. Two vols. in one. Thick 8vo, cont. blind-stamped pigskin over wooden boards, upper cover dated in blind "1580," remains of catches. Rome: V. Accolti, 1574. First edition of Clavius's main work, his rare and influential edition of Euclid; ours is a fine and handsome copy in a contemporary south German or Swiss blind-stamped and panelled pigskin binding over wooden boards. Clavius (1538-1612), was called by his contemporaries "the Euclid of the sixteenth century." "In 1574 a new departure in the matter of format was taken. A Latin edition in two octavo volumes with rather diminutive diagrams was printed at Rome by Vincenzo Accolti. The [editor] was Christophorus Clavius (Schlüssel) of Bamberg, of the Society of Jesus, a mathematician who gave the Gregorian Calendar of New Style its present form and made all the calculations necessary for its verification. It contains the fifteen books with very full scholia, and the addition of a sixteenth, De solidorum regularium comparatione. It was reprinted at Rome in 1589 in the same form, and in folio at Cologne in 1591."-Thomas-Stanford, p. 11. [Clavius's] "Elements, which is not a translation, contains a vast quantity of notes collected from previous commentators and editors, as well as some good criticisms and elucidations of his own. Among other things, Clavius made a new attempt at proving 'the postulate of the parallels.'...In a scholion, to the twelfth proposition of the ninth book of Euclid, Clavius objects to Cardanus' claim to originality in employing a method that derives a proposition by assuming the contradictory of the proposition to be proved. According to Clavius, Cardanus was anticipated in this method by Euclid and by Theodosius of Bithynia in the twelfth proposition of the first book of his Sphaericorum."-D.S.B., III, p. 311. Minor browning and discoloration to the binding but a fine and large copy; just the way it should appear. ❧Thomas-Stanford 19.

    Protomathesis by FINÉ, Oronce

    Architectural woodcut title border; a large woodcut of Urania & the author beneath a celestial sphere, repeated in the "Cosmographia" section; a large woodcut of a water-clock, repeated; 280 other woodcuts in the text; and numerous large initials & headpieces. 8 p.l., 207 (i.e. 209) leaves, one leaf of errata. Folio, most attractive early 18th-cent. mottled half-sheep & mottled boards (first two leaves a little discolored), spine gilt, pale brown & green morocco lettering pieces on spine. Paris: [G. Morrhe & J. Pierre], 1532. First collected edition, and a magnificent large copy of this beautiful book, containing the first printings of many of Finé's texts; this is his masterpiece of illustrated book production. The first two parts of the Protomathesis deal with arithmetic and geometry, the third with cosmography, and the fourth with gnomonics. Finé (1494-1555), "was Regius professor of mathematics and dedicated the volume to François I. Before Johnson's article and Brun's consideration of Finé, little attention had been paid to the statements made by Finé's contemporaries that he was considered as well versed in art as in the sciences. His work as a designer is closely related to his major fields of mathematics, astronomy, and geography, and his contribution to book production is particularly interesting in extending beyond the illustration to the ornamentation of scientific texts."-Mortimer 225. A fine and fresh copy, very crisp. With the blank leaves F8 and N6. Early 18th-century bookplate of "Co. Riccati." This was the noble Riccati family which held land near Venice. The family produced two prominent scientists: Jacopo Francesco (1676-1754) and his second son Vincenzo (1707-75). They both made important contributions to mathematics (see D.S.B., XI, pp. 399-402). There are a number of knowledgeable 18th-century annotations in this book which could well have been made by one of the Riccatis. ❧ Hoover 312. Lalande, p. 50-"on trouve les cadrans plans horizontaux, verticaux, équinoxiaux; les cadrans sur les cylindres, les anneaux et les quarts-de-cercle; les hémisphères concaves et convexes; le cadran rectiligne universel des hauteurs; les heures italiques; l'instrument pour trouver l'heure par les étoiles, l'anneau astronomique; un instrument propre à tracer les cadrans; c'est un cercle équinoxial traversé d'un axe, et un fil qu'on tend sur les heures.''

    Pratique de la Geometrie sur le Papier et sur le Terrain. Avec un nouvel Ordre & une Methode particuliere by LE CLERC, Sébastien

    Engraved frontis., an engraved head-piece at beginning of the dedication, & 82 full-page engravings in the text. 4 p.l. (incl. frontis.), 41, 139, [8] pp. 12mo, 18th-cent. green morocco, sides panelled in gilt, flat spine gilt, a.e.g. Paris: T. Jolly, 1669 (colophon dated 1668). First edition, and a lovely copy, of this uncommon and influential book, a popular manual for artists and architects. This is "one of the most attractive little mathematical works ever published."-Hofer, Baroque Book Illustration, pp. 14 & 32. The illustrations in this book show beautiful small landscapes in the lower portion of the image, while the upper portion shows geometrical diagrams; many are animated by figures (peasants, soldiers, noblemen in contemporary costume). Leclerc's style of illustration strongly influenced the 18th-century French vignettists, prefiguring the grace and elegance of the best French rococo. Le Clerc (1637-1714), a native of Lorraine, adapted the technique of his countryman Jacques Callot. Professor of geometry and perspective at the Royal Academy of Arts and Sciences, Le Clerc also worked for Louis XIV as "graveur du Roi." Fine copy. ❧ Brunet, III, 915-"elle est recherchée à cause des figures qui y sont de premier tirage.".

    Modern Analytic Geometry, A by Edgett, G. L.; Burford, Frederick J.; Kippen, John W.; Mitchell, Robert G.; Newnham, William T

    Toronto: The Ryerson Press, 1964. Previous Owner Markings (Notes and Marginalia); Corners, Spine, Boards Bumped; Heavy Shelf Rub to Boards; Edges Moderately Soiled; Heavy Yellowing Due to Age. COVER ILLUSTRATION: The dramatically startling design of a City Hall for Toronto was the winner of a world-wide contest. It owes its revolutionary beauty and slender grace to the inspired use in its design of the circle and arcs of circles. (Illustration by Panda Photographs.) CONTENTS: I. Points, Lengths and Slope II. Area of Rectilinear Figures III. Locus IV. The Straight Line V. Length of a Perpendicular VI. The Circle VII. The Parabola VIII. The Ellipse IX. The Hyperbola X. Tangents XI. Diameters XII. Transformation of Coordinates XIII. Appendix; Answers. EXCERPT: AUTHORS' FOREWORD - A Modern Analytic Geometry is the outgrowth of discussions held by the authors while engaged in marking Grade 13 Geometry departmental examinations. The present work reflects their view that a new approach might be an aid in promoting a better understanding of the subject in these days of change in mathematical thought. This book is less than revolutionary in its forward move, but the influence of modern mathematics is apparent. For example, the traditional "moving point" concept of locus is blended with the notion of sets in the hope that students will acquire a more complete understanding of the concepts involved. Each of the conic sections is considered before tangents and diameters are fully introduced to make possible a saving of time and to assist in effective review . . .. First Edition 3rd Printing.
