EULER, Leonhard. Methodus inveniendi lineas curvas maximi minimive proprietate gaudentes, sive solutio problematis isoperimetrici latissimo sensu accepti.
Lausanne & Genf, Bousquet, 1744

4to. 255x200 mm. Legatura del XIX secolo in mezza pelle, dorso con fregi in oro. Pagine [2], 322, [2, con le istruzione per il legatore]. Frontespizio in rosso e nero con vignetta incisa, 5 tavole incise in rame ripiegate. Nota di possesso manoscritta sul Frontespizio. Ex-llibris del matematico Paul Stäckel. Lievi bruniture e foxing, alcuni marginalia, buono stato di conservazione. 

Prima edizione dell'opera in cui compare per la prima volta il calcolo delle variazioni. Cajori: “[This book, which displayed] an amount of mathematical genius seldom rivalled, contained his researches on the calculus of variation to the invention of which Euler was led by the study of the researches of Johann and Jakob Bernoulli?The study of isoperimetrical curves, the brachistochrone in a resisting medium and the theory of geodesics, previously treated by the elder Bernoullis and others, led to the creation of this new branch of mathematics, the Calculus of Variations. His method was essentially geometrical, which makes the solution of the simpler problems very clear.” Norman: “Euler was the first to formulate the principal problems of the calculus of variations and to create general methods for their solution”. Roberts & Trent: “-"For the purposes of mechanics, the significance of this work lies in the appendix, which deals with geometrical forms of elastic curves?The present work illustrates the first solution to the problem of the buckling of a column.” DSB: “Euler was the first to formulate the principal problems of the calculus of variations and to create general methods for their solution". Horblit: “creation of the calculus of variations".
