(Fourth volume starts exceptionally with page 3 as the Norman copy). Our copy is complete except for the two portraits which are lacking (portrait of Bernoulli and portrait of Frederic III king of Prussia). Uniform 19th century black cloth with smooth back and red cloth title label, sprinkled edges, ex-library K.K. Génie-Academie-Bibliothek, small oval 19th century stamps on title and on the verso side of the plates, some clear waterstains on pages 120-140 of volume II and on the first 35 pages of volume III. In all a reasonably good and acceptable copy complete but for the two portraits. This first edition of the collective works of Jean Bernoulli comprises 189 of his papers and 59 of his lectures. It was edited by Gabriel Cramer. After Newton and Leibniz Bernoulli was the leading mathematician to work on and to develop the differential and integral calculus. Most of the first volume is devoted to these texts. Volume II and III contain mainly his texts on mechanics. Volume four has the first printing of ''Hydraulica'' on which he worked in competition with his son Daniel. See e.g. Roberts & Trents; Bibliotheca Mechanica pp. 36-37, Poggendorff I 157-59.
