Excerpt from Correspondence of Scientific Men of the Seventeenth Century, Vol. 1 of 2: Including Letters of Barrow, Flamsteed, Wallis, and Newton, Printed From the Originals

It will be known to most of those into whose hands these volumes will pass, that my father was engaged upon them at the time when he was suddenly taken from his labours. He had printed the first volume, and I therefore entered upon the work with the second, the first sheet of which had been once corrected, but not revised. The state of the materials which were left to me will be seen hereafier; but for the execution and correctness of the second volume I must be responsible.

Description du livre Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. État : New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Excerpt from Correspondence of Scientific Men of the Seventeenth Century, Vol. 1 of 2: Including Letters of Barrow, Flamsteed, Wallis, and Newton, Printed From the Originals With this brief notice I must pass to that which more immediately concerns my execution of the task intrusted to me. In the first place it must be observed, that from the beginning the printers declared themselves unable to work from the originals. There were so many different hand-writings, so many various forms of spelling, different abbreviations, and distinct methods of notation, that it was found impossible for any one unacquainted with the general subjects of the letters to decipher, or reproduce them; and hence it became necessary to copy the whole correspondence And this was done by my father. There were advantages which flowed from the labour, troublesome as it was. Had the letters been at once printed from the originals, they must have been made copies of them in all the irregularity and quaintness of the spelling of the tine. It would have been vain to attempt to systematize, as one part followed another through the press; and yet, curious as the letters might have been in this form, it may well be doubted if any advantage could have resulted from adhering to inaccuracies, - while every convenience is gained by the simple introduction of one regular orthography. In this single respect they must not be taken as specimens of antiquity. The spelling has been modernized throughout. And if any additional reason were wanting, it would suffice to say, that it sometimes varies almost as much in the same, as it does in different individuals.
