Despite being generally unknown to the greats of contemporary mathematics, Apollonius s Conics is said by Chasles to contain the most interesting properties of conics . Written by one of the great pioneers of geometry, this scarce text contains a comprehensive account of the mathematics of conics, and as such constitutes a valuable to addition to the libraries of serious mathematicians and historians alike. Apollonius of Perga was a Greek geometer and astronomer, most famous for his work pertaining to conic sections and whose methodology and terminology influenced such intellectual giants as Ptolemy, Johannes Kepler, Francesco Maurolico, Isaac Newton, and Rene Descartes. This rare text is proudly republished here with an introductory biography of the author."

The Greek mathematician Diophantos of Alexandria lived during the third century CE. Apart from his age (he reached eighty-four), very little else is known about his life. Even the exact form of his name is uncertain, and only a few incomplete manuscripts of his greatest work, Arithmetica, have survived. In this impressive scholarly investigation, first published in 1885, Thomas Little Heath (1861-1940) meticulously presents what can be gleaned from Greek, Latin and Arabic sources, and guides the reader through the algebraist's idiosyncratic style of mathematics, discussing his notation and originality. This was the first thorough survey of Diophantos' work to appear in English. Also reissued in this series are Heath's two-volume History of Greek Mathematics, his treatment of Greek astronomy through the work of Aristarchus of Samos, and his edition in modern notation of the Treatise on Conic Sections by Apollonius of Perga.

More than a study of shapes and angles, geometry reflects an amalgamation of discoveries over time. This book not only provides readers with a comprehensive understanding of geometric shapes, axioms, and formulas, it presents the field’s brilliant minds—from Euclid to Wendelin Werner and many in between—whose works reflect a progression of mathematical thought throughout the centuries and have helped produce the various branches of geometry as they are known today. Detailed diagrams illustrate various concepts and help make geometry accessible to all.

Alchemy is thought to have originated over 2000 years ago in Hellenic Egypt, the result of three converging streams: Greek philosophy, Egyptian technology and the mysticism of Middle Eastern religions. Its heyday was from about 800 A.D. to the middle of the seventeenth century, and its practitioners ranged from kings, popes, and emperors to minor clergy, parish clerks, smiths, dyers, and tinkers. Even such accomplished men as Roger Bacon, Thomas Aquinas, Sir Thomas Browne and Isaac Newton took an interest in alchemical matters. In its search for the "Philosopher's Stone" that would transmute base metals into silver and gold, alchemy took on many philosophical, religious and mystical overtones. These and many other facets of alchemy are explored with enormous insight and erudition in this classic work. E. J. Holmyard, a noted scholar in the field, begins with the alchemists of ancient Greece and China and goes on to discuss alchemical apparatus, Islamic and early Western alchemy; signs, symbols, and secret terms; Paracelsus; English, Scottish and French alchemists; Helvetius, Price, and Semler, and much more. Ranging over two millennia of alchemical history, Mr. Holmyard shows how, like astrology and witchcraft, alchemy was an integral part of the pre-scientific moral order, arousing the cupidity of princes, the blind fear of mobs and the intellectual curiosity of learned men. Eventually, however, with the advent and ascension of the scientific method, the hopes and ideas of the alchemists faded to the status of "pseudo-science." That transformation, as well as alchemy's undeniable role as a precursor of modern chemistry, are brilliantly illuminated in this book. Students of alchemy, chemistry, the history of science, and the occult, plus anyone interested in the origin and evolution of one of mankind's most enduring and influential myths, will want to have a copy of this masterly study.

Covering the general fields of mathematics, astronomy, mathematical geography, physics, chemistry and chemical technology, geology and meteorology, biology, medicine, and physiological psychology, the present collection surveys the field of Greek scientific achievement over a thousand-year period. Many Greek scientific treatises were written and read by cultivated people who did not regard themselves as specialists. These works should appeal today to those readers who wish to understand not only the foundations of modern science, but also a vital element of the humanistic tradition.

This work counters historiographies that search for the origins of modern science within the experimental practices of Europe’s first scientific institutions, such as the Cimento. It proposes that we should look beyond the experimental rhetoric found in published works, to find that the Cimento academicians were participants in a culture of natural philosophical theorising that existed throughout Europe.

A first English translation of Book IV of Apollonius's Conics, translated and annotated by Michael N. Fried, as a companion volume to our edition of Conics Books I-III. Conics IV deals with the way pairs of conic sections can intersect or touch each other. In his Introduction to the translation, Fried shows that this book has been misappraised by scholars too much inclined to see Apollonius's work merely as a precursor to the analytic geometry of the seventeenth century. He writes, Playfulness is one of the real delights of Book IV. One can see in this playfulness the artful way Apollonius contends with the main challenge of the book—-the problem of how the opposite sections, specifically, meet other sections of a cone and other opposite sections—- how he gives this problem both foundation and context.
