First edition. Vol I [all published] of the author’s first book. Whitehead, an English mathematician and philosopher, is best known as the defining figure of the philosophical school known as process philosophy. The volume is divided into seven books: in Book I the general principles of the subject are discussed; Book II is devoted to the Algebra of Symbolic Logic; Book III deals with general principles of addition and the theory of a positional manifold; Book IV discusses principles of the Calculus of Extension. The final three books are devoted to the Calculus of Extension in relation to the theory of forces in a positional manifold of three dimensions, non-Euclidean geometry and the ordinary Euclidean space of three dimensions.

Quarto, Original dark blue cloth, spine lettered in gilt, boards double ruled in blind. Boards a little scuffed; an excellent copy.

Bibliography: Church 99.1 (with reference to Book II); Risse II, 142.
