London: F. Wingrave, et al., 1796. Sixth Edition. Full Leather. Very Good binding. Quite a solid copy of this 18th century algebra text, with the 12 folding engraved plates as called for. First published posthumously in 1748, Maclaurin's treatise has importance in the field (he proved a rule for solving square linear systems in the cases of 2 and 3 unknowns) and must have enjoyed popularity, as this is the sixth printing. And it crossed the Atlantic; interestingly this copy has the signature of "William Archer, Williamsburg", a nice association with the venerable old colonial town. In full mottled calf, with a morocco title label. Both boards have been discreetly reattached. Very Good binding. (Inventory #: 274709)
