Bindings rubbed, hinges cracked on Volume 1, but still holding firm, 12 mm (½ inch) hole to top of hinge on Volume 3, Volume 2 top hinge has 40 mm (1½ inch) crack, but still holding firm, other hinges rubbed but all covers holding firm, corners worn with board showing through at most tips, green labels unevenly faded, 4 pages have very small holes to top margins, not affecting text, 1 top margin has very small chip, all paper flaws but not affecting text, 2 pages lightly dusty and a few top margins have a light brown horizontal stain, not affecting text, 3 pages have tips of corners missing, paper flaws, some occasional light age-browning due to different paper stock used, small neat old ink inscription to the top margin of each title page, 3 ink shelf numbers to top of the first free endpaper of each volume, occasional small spots and creases as is usual in old books, otherwise a very good set of this classic work. This edition first published in Geneva in 1739 is known as the "Jesuits" edition although the 2 editors Le Seur and Jacquier were Minims not Jesuits. The text of the Principia is that of the third edition, each volume contains a separate book of Principia and the 3rd Volume contains in addition "Traite sur le flux et reflux de la mer. Par mr. Daniel Bernoully": Volume 3, pages 133-246. "De causa physica fluxus et refluxus maris. A d. d. Mac-Laurin": Volume 3, pages 247-282. "Inquisitio physica in causam fluxus et refluxus maris. A d. d. Euler": Volume 3, pages 283-274. These were three prizewinning essays submitted in 1724 to the Academie des Sciences to resolve "the Problem relating to the Motion of the Tides from the theory of gravity". The third volume also contains a long Introductio ad lunae theoriam Newtonionam pages 537-677. The Jesuits' edition is valued for its copious commentary. See Derek Gjertsen, The Newton Handbook page 477: "With its rich editorial content, extensive summaries and detailed index, the Jesuit edition remains the most ambitious ever published. Between 1727 and 1871 and excluding translations, the only editions of Principia published were Jesuit editions. It is still a desirable and useful work". See also the Babson Catalogue page 19.
