De Motu Corporum Projectorum in Spatio non resistenete. Dissertatio habita in Seminario Romano
One folding engraved plate. xxii pp. Large 4to, attractive modern speckled wrappers. Rome: A. de Rubeis, 1740. First edition, and quite rare, of one of Boscovich's earliest and most important works in mechanics and physics, written while teaching logic and mathematics at the Collegium Romanum. In the present work, Boscovich discusses a problem of classical mechanics: the motion of a material point. This theme was later developed in his major work in the field of natural philosophy, Philosophiae naturalis theoria (1758). "In mechanics (as in optics)…his allegiance to Newton was qualified."-D.S.B., II, p. 330. Fine copy. It might be noted that Mr. Honeyman, who really tried to collect all of Boscovich, did not own this title. ❧ Riccardi, I, 173. Whyte, R.J. Boscovich, pp. 34-35 & p. 214 in the bibliography.
