Theory of the motion of the heavenly bodies moving about the sun in conic sections : a translation of Theoria motus by Carl Friedrich Gauss( Book )

1 edition published in 1809 in Latin and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Described by one reviewer as 'one of the most perfect books ever written on theoretical astronomy', this work in Latin by the German mathematician Carl Friedrich Gauss (1777-1855), the 'Prince of Mathematicians', derived from his attempt to solve an astronomical puzzle: where in the heavens would the dwarf planet Ceres, first sighted in 1801, reappear? Gauss' predicted position was correct to within half a degree, and this led him to develop a streamlined and sophisticated method of calculating the effect of the larger planets and the sun on the orbits of planetoids, which he published in 1809. As well as providing a tool for astronomers, Gauss' method also offered a way of reducing inaccuracy of calculations arising from measurement error; the primacy of this discovery was however disputed between him and the French mathematician Legendre, whose Essai sur la théorie des nombres is also reissued in this series

Spanish: Don Quijote es considerada la obra literaria más influyente del Siglo de Oro y de todo el canon literario español, y en muchos aspectos la primera novela moderna en la literatura occidental, en su visión caleidoscópica de personajes, significados, intertextualidad y concepciones literarias. En 1829, el erudito y bibliógrafo español Vicente Salvá determinó que este libro es una verdadera edición príncipe (primera edición impresa) del primer volumen de El ingenioso hidalgo don Quixote de la Mancha. Hasta entonces, se la consideraba una segunda edición, impresa en el mismo año. Alentado por el éxito de otras obras de ficción como Guzmán de Alfarache de Mateo Alemán, Francisco de Robles (librero del rey) compró los derechos para publicar Don Quixote. De Robles contrató a Juan de la Cuesta, regente de la antigua imprenta de Pedro Madrigal, para que se encargara del trabajo de impresión, que comenzó a fines de septiembre de 1604, cerca de la fecha del privilegio. Esta edición es un ejemplo de la tipografía de baja calidad que caracterizaba la impresión española de aquella época. Si se considera el nivel general de la impresión y la velocidad con la que se produjo el libro, no es de extrañar que esta edición tenga tanta cantidad de erratas y hasta errores tipográficos a lo largo del texto. El gran éxito de la obra llevó a de Robles a preparar una segunda edición, en la que se corrigieron muchos de los errores. Es probable que el mismo Cervantes haya tenido parte en algunas de las correcciones, por ejemplo en la corrección relacionada con el robo del asno de Sancho. La participación del autor en el proceso de corrección añade gran valor a esta segunda edición. Un donante privado entregó esta obra a la biblioteca nacional en Madrid en 1865, según lo registrado por el director Hartzenbusch en su memoria anual. English: Don Quixote is considered the most influential work of literature from the Spanish Golden Age and the entire Spanish literary canon, and in many aspects the first modern novel in Western Literature, as a kaleidoscope of characters, meanings, intertextuality and literary conceptions. In 1829, the Spanish scholar and bibliographer Vicente Salvá determined that this book was the true editio princeps (first printed edition) of the first volume of El ingenioso hidalgo don Quixote de la Mancha (The ingenious gentleman Don Quixote of La Mancha). Until then, it had been considered a second edition, printed in the same year. Encouraged by the success of other fictional works, such as Mateo Alemán's Guzmán de Alfarache (The life of Guzman de Alfarache), Francisco de Robles, printer to the king, bought the rights to publish Don Quixote. De Robles contracted Juan de la Cuesta, manager of the old printing press of Pedro Madrigal, to undertake the printing, which began in late September 1604, close to the date of the license to publish. This edition is an example of the low-quality typography that characterized Spanish printing at the time. Considering the general level of printing and the speed with which the book was produced, it is not surprising that this edition has a large number of misprints and even typographical mistakes throughout the text. The great success of the work led de Robles to prepare a second edition, in which many of the mistakes were corrected. It is likely that Cervantes himself had a hand in some of the corrections, such as the one pertaining to the theft of Sancho'ss donkey. The author's involvement in the correction process adds to the importance of this second edition. This copy was given to the national library in Madrid in 1865 by a private donor, as recorded by Director Hartzenbusch in his annual report
