Provenance

“?Const. Subhartat emt. 12”, purchase note on paste-down; James Noble, Barby [Northamptonshire?]; inscription dated 1765; signature on title "M Frolov", signature on title, (plausibly the mathematician Mikhail Frolov, 1833-1908); bought from Interlibrum, Vaduz, 1986

Literature

Tomash & Williams L65; cf. Ravier 6; VD17 12:194409W (wrongly calling for 34 plates: no known copy contains more than the frontispiece plate)

Catalogue Note

Both the first edition of 1666 and this second edition are rare. This work on combinations and permutations, drawing on Descartes and others, proposes a logical mathematical language, and, as such, points the way to the age of the computer.
