Honeyman VII 2991; Norman 2086; PMM 145; Riccardi II 542; Carli-Favaro 43 (204); Cinti 226 (114). - FIRST EDITION of the only work published during Torricelli's lifetime. A brilliant mathematician, Torricelli was Galileo's assistant and companion during the last two years of the elder scientist's life, and he succeeded Galileo in the post of grand ducal mathematician. In his Opera Geometrica, published at the expense of Grand-Duke Ferdinand II, Torricelli elucidated and diffused the difficult geometry of Cavalieri (see lot 359), thereby gaining himself widespread recognition throughout Europe. The first part, compiled around 1641, 'studies figures arising through rotation of a regular polygon inscribed in or circumscribed about a circle around one of its axes of symmetry... Torricelli... classifies such rotation solids into six kinds, studies their properties, and presents some new propositions and new metrical relations for the round bodies of elementary geometry... As Torricelli acquired increasing familiarity with the method of indivisibles, he reached the point of surpassing the master - as Cavalieri himself said' (DSB). In the second section, De moto gravium, Torricelli continued Galileo's study of the parabolic motion of projectiles. The treatise includes several significant contributions to mechanics, the calculus and ballistics. It also 'refers to the movement of water in a paragraph so important that Ernst Mach proclaimed Torricelli the founder of hydrodynamics' (DSB). This states 'Torricelli's theorem' in which Torricelli determined that the efflux velocity of a jet of liquid spurting from a small hole at the bottom of a vessel is equal to that which a single drop of the liquid would have if it could fall freely in a vacuum from the level of the top of the liquid.

Description:
London : Awnsham Churchill, 1682 A good copy of the 1st edition in later full leather binding with frontispiece and 23 full page plates, of which 10 are folding. Leybourn's first work on Dialing was published in 1669; it's popularity (particularly given the use of sun-dials and astrolabes by the navy at that time) led to this expanded folio version, funded by subscription. William Leybourn was a leading practical mathematician and authored a number of works on surveying, Gunter's Line and measuring tables. This copy has been rebound fairly recently in a full pigskin binding with raised bands and title and author labels. New endpapers have been added, and the frontispiece relaid and repaired (there was loss to the side edge and a little damage to the portrait). Contents with title page; To the Reader 3pp; Contents of the Tractates [the work is arranged in 11 sections or Tractates] 4pp; errata 1p; Introduction 12pp; text with plates, tables and diagrams 330 pp; finis; final blank.

Softcover 4to, 44pp. No date, but an article about the book appears in the Dec 3, 1971 San Jose State "Spartan Daily" newspaper. Adhesive remainder to the upper left cover, mild rubbing and edgewear. Previous owner's signature on the title page, else unmarked. Great '70s graphic design and illustrations. Developed while Goldberg was a grad student at SJS to make sturdy geometrical models that "combine techniques from the mathematics and art classroom." Patterns are included to make a equilateral tetrahedron, equilateral hexahedron, isosceles hexahedron, cube, octahedron, decahedron, icosahedron, twenty-four triangular hedron, and concave hedron. Goldberg published a more popular variation of the book in 1977, without Sellars (misspelled "Sellers" on the title page). The newer "Pholdit" featured simpler shapes and was marketed toward a more general audience for "family fun." Scarce.
