A lovely copy of the collected works of one of Newton's disciples. Keill, a Scottish mathematician and popular author, was one of Newton's staunchest supporters and defenders. This volume, assembled by the Verbeek brothers, collects all of Keill's previously published works, and also includes additional papers by Keill on centripetal and attractive forces.

Includes the 2 extremely rare and sought after Lunar Maps which are lacking in many copies.

Condition: Overall good. Binding rubbed and edges bumped. Joints rubbed but hold very well. Some browning, plates overall clean.
