Original edition reprinted in facsimile -- 'which has become the most famous of his scientific works' and 'is significant in many ways' (D.S.B. I: 111). xxvi, 1 leaf, 186 pp, 1 leaf; 70 figs. Leatherette. Near Fine. D'Alembert 'recognized that a scientific revolution had occurred, and he thought that he was doing the job of formalizing the new science of mechanics. That accomplishment is often attributed to Newton, but in fact it was done over a long period of time by a number of men. If d'Alembert was overly proud of his share, he was at least clearly aware of what was happening in science. The Traité also contained the first statement of what is now known as d'Alembert's principle. . [which] can be summarized as follows: In any situation where an object is constrained from following its normal inertial motion, the resulting motion can be analyzed into two components. One of these is the motion the object actaully takes, and the other is the motion 'destroyed' by the contraints' (D.S.B. I: 111-2). Buchnummer des Verkäufers D00104
