Memiors of the Life and Writings of Mr. William Whiston Whiston, William

Om föremålet

Volume 1 only, pp. 1-368. London, 1749. Front FEP and title page missing. Whiston knew and worked with Isaac Newton (succeeding him as Lucasian Professor of Mathematics in at Cambridge in 1702); here he comments briefly on both Newton's mathematical writings and his religious Chronology, the latter with which Whiston strongly disagreed and in reply wrote a strong "Confutation." Previous owner's signature and date in pencil on flyleaf preceding first page of text. Front hinge and spine detached; rough paper boards held in place by old cloth tape; what looks like the original spine is still in place, taped over, and may be salvageable; there is a typed label scotch-taped to spine: "MEMOIRS of William Whiston born in 1667 / written by him at age 79-80-81-82 / printed circa 1746" - the book was actually printed in 1749: the original title page (here missing) read, "Printed for the author, and sold by Mr. Whiston, Fleet Street, and Mr. Bishop, in Little Turn-Stile, Holborn. 1749." Only in fair condition externally, as described above, but interior pages are intact, undamaged, yellowed with age but unmarked.
