ELEMENTS OF THE CONIC SECTIONS by Dr. Robert Simson, from 1804, in very well preserved condition. Leather boards; 278 pages, followed by a page of "Directions to the Binder" with a list of plates. The boards and binding are solid and tight save for light rubbing and shelfwear. The pages are crisp and clean save for foxing to inside boards and first blank pages. Top corner chip missing from first blank page. Profusely illustrated with pull-out geometric diagram engravings. "Robert Simson (14 October 1687 – 1 October 1768) was a Scottish mathematician and professor of mathematics at the University of Glasgow. The pedal line of a triangle is sometimes called the 'Simson line' after him." [Wikipedia]
