A rare, mid-18th-century work by Christian von Wolff. Wolff, an eminent German philosophy, wrote “Anfangsgründe” in 1710. This work covers a vast set of topics including arithmetic, geometry, trigonometry, mechanics, hydraulics, optics, perspective, astronomy, geography, gnomonics, and artillery. This 1755 edition is filled with 38 engravings depicting:

  • Windmills, watermills, gristmills
  • Solar system, planets
  • Artillery, cannons, gunpowder
  • Forts, fortification walls, star forts
  • Geometric formulas and shapes, compass
  • 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.
