Edición: First Edition.
A student of Isaac Newton at Cambridge, Whiston (1667-1752) mixed science and religion as freely as his master, arguing for example that Noah's flood was engineered by a comet hitting the earth; the comet was divinely guided. Continuing his studies while serving as a vicar, he returned to Cambridge in 1702 to succeed Newton as Lucasian Professor of mathematics. His heterodox views, particularly concerning the Trinity, led to his dismissal 8 years later. The present volume, his last major work, represents the culmination of over 25 years of obsessive synthesis. The Dorsa Whiston, a wrinkle ridge system Oceanus Procellarum on the Moon, is named in his honor. Contents very good, bound in full recent calf. N° de ref. de la librería 16626
