A rare, mid-18th-century work by Christian von Wolff. Wolff, an eminent German philosophy, wrote “Anfangsgründe” in 1710. Also known as “Elementa Matheseos Universae”, this work covers a vast set of topics including arithmetic, geometry, trigonometry, mechanics, hydraulics, optics, perspective, astronomy, geography, gnomonics, and artillery. This 1735 Latin edition features 51 folding engravings depicting:

  • Heat experiments
  • Astronomical tools
  • Light behavior, optical examples, magic lanterns

 

Wolff’s philosophy was well balanced between logic and rationalism. He occasionally studied cosmology, but most of his studies were rooted in proofs even though many of his beliefs followed the existence and attributes of God.
