    First Edition in English of L'Hopital's Textbook on Differential Calculus

    [Mathematics]. Guillaume François Antoine, Marquis de L'Hopital. An Analytick Treatise of Conick Sections and Their Use for Resolving of Equations in Determinate and Indeterminate Problems. 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.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
