London: D. Midwinter, 1726. Hardcover. Volume I only. 8vo, old calf, good with front joint neatly strengthened, replacement spine label (paper), contents very good with all plates collated present, moderate wear and tanning to title page. xii (4) 512 pp, with 34 plates total. This volume does not print Halley on comets; it does print three "books" - "Of the System of the World," "Of the First Motion," and "Of the Theory of Primary Planets." Gregory was the first to openly promote and teach The Principia & Newtonian physics and laws of motion, and in fact took many notes on a conversation with Newton in 1694 as Newton was revising The Principia, so this is one of the first astronomy texts for general consumption to incorporate Newtonian theories. Good. Item #H13553
