Made English by E. Stone. London: J. Senex, 1723. First English edition. Large octavo. vii, [1], 351, [1, Errata]. With thirty-three folding engraved plates. Complete.

    L'Hopital (1661-1704) was a noted mathematician who studied with Johan Bernoulli. The current title was originally published posthumously in 1707 in French, and is an early important contribution applying the structure of algebra to geometric problems and thus bridging the gap between these two branches of mathematics.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
