Wiedeburg, Johann Ernst Basilius. Kurzgefaßte practische Mathematic vor diejenigen, welche sich auf die Rechtsgelahrheit, Cameralwissenschaft und Oeconomie legen.

Jena, Christian Henrich Cuno, 1761.

8vo. (2), 552, (4) pp. With 6 folding plates. Contemporary full calf with giltstamped red label to richly gilt spine. Marbled endpapers. All edges sprinkled red.


First and only edition. Wiedeburg (1733-89) was professor of physics, mathematics and astronomy in Jena, and author of a number of textbooks on these subjects. In the present volume he treats successively arithmetics, geometry, mechanics, hydrostatics, hydraulics, architecture and chronology, everything "with its applications for lawyers, cameralists and economists".

Binding a little rubbed, minor flaw to upper spine-end. Interior clean. Quite rare: GBV locates 6 copies in Germany, not in OPAC or NUC.


Poggendorff II, 1318.
