[Normalized Text] [Diplomatic Text] [Manuscript Images]


On the front cover in Thomas Pellet's hand: 'Sep 25 1727/ Not fit to be printed/ Tho Pellet'.

Ostensibly a dissertation on hydrostatics, more properly an attack on the supposedly atheistic philosophy of Descartes. Probably associated with the Principia.
