MULLER, JOHN. - Elements of Mathematics ... to which is prefixed, The first principles of algebra ... the third edition improved: with an addition of a New Treatise on Perspective.

London, for J. Millan 1765. Octavo contemporary calf (rubbed and a bit worn at the tips, with a chipped ms paper label); xxxvi,312pp and 28 folding plates - 21 plates in the main work and seven in the section on perspective. Title a bit dusty or browned, light browning here and there but a rather good, quite fresh copy. ¶ This seems to be the definitive or best edition of this standard work. Muller was professor of fortifications at the Royal Military Academy and was a respected, though not remarkable, mathemetican. He was called the 'scholastic father' of the best engineers of later 18th century England (E.G.R. Taylor cites Boswell's Life of Johnson for this epithet).
