(London, Richard Taylor, 1833). 4to. No wrappers as extracted from "Philosophical Transactions" 1833 - Part II. Pp. 559-592. Clean and fine. ¶ First printing of a major paper by James Ivory.

"Ivory's scientific reputation, for which he was awarded many honours during his lifetime, including knighthood of the Order of the Guelphs, Civil Division (1831), was founded on the ability to understand and comment the work of the French analysts rather than any great originality of his own...Ivory's work, conducted with great industry over a long period, helped to foster in England a new interest in the application of analysis to physical problems." (DSB VII. p. 37).
