Attributed to Viscount Bolingbroke in NUC pre-1956. To recommend himself to Frederick, prince of Wales, Bolingbroke entrusted to Alexander Pope his unpublished manuscript of three works: 'The patriot king' dated December 1738; an essay previously written upon the 'Spirit of patriotism' and afterwards addressed to Lord Lyttelton; and a paper on 'The state of parties at the accesssion of George I.' Pope's secret publication of 1500 copies of 'The patriot king' led Bolingbroke to anonymously publish a "correct edition" in 1749 edited by David Mallet. Cf. DNB and advertisement (p. v-xi)

The doctrine of chances, or, A method of calculating the probabilities of events in play by Abraham de Moivre( Book )

2 editions published in 1756 in English and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A Huguenot exile in England, the French mathematician Abraham de Moivre (1667-1754) formed friendships with such luminaries as Edmond Halley and Isaac Newton. Making his living from private tuition, he became a fellow of the Royal Society in 1697 and published papers on a range of topics. Probability theory had been pioneered by Pascal, Fermat and Huygens, with further development by the Bernoullis. Originally published in 1718, The Doctrine of Chances was the first English textbook on the new science and so influential that for a time the whole subject was known by the title of the work. Reissued here is the revised and expanded 1738 second edition which contains the remarkable discovery that when a coin is tossed many times, the binomial distribution may be approximated by the normal distribution. This version of the central limit theorem stands as one of de Moivre's most significant contributions to mathematics
