10 Exceptional Works of Science celebrates major figures and breakthroughs within the history of science. Spanning five centuries of scientific achievement - and including primary material in the fields of Astronomy, Mathematics, Electromagnetism, Thermodynamics, Unified Field Theory, and Cosmology - this exciting sale features both published and autograph works by Rheticus (Copernicus' disciple), Newton, Maxwell, and Einstein, as well as rarely-seen and essential offerings from Gauss, Poincare, Hawking and Joule. This important sale is rounded out by a remarkable early-Renaissance manuscript (c. 1400) on political theory and the science of government – a newly-discovered exemplar, one of only two known copies in existence.
