Letter from Viktor von Tschusi zu Schmidhoffen (in German), with modern transcription and summarised translation, 12 February 1898

Identifier: Coll-14/9/4/3
Scope and Contents As the letter is not addressed to Ewart by name, it is unclear whether the letter was addressed to another recipient. Tschusi confirms the receipt of the addressee's letter, prospectus of and index of Bohemian ornithology, which includes a bibliography. He complains that the index does not contain an important work by the addressee's uncle and that one of the his own works has been omitted from the bibliography. He therefore declines the dedication of the addressee's book to him. He...

Libri hactenus desiderati, probably not before 1684

Identifier: Coll-33/Quarto A [47]
Scope and Contents

A short list of partial titles Gregory wished at this moment to acquire. They are about mechanics, mostly, and optics. Thus they may well go with item Coll-33/Quarto A [46], on the reverse, at least generally, apparently part of his Edinburgh lecture notes about the same. In the lower right is a label referring to the reverse side: the document was once folded and stored that way.

Dates: probably not before 1684

Libri quedam mathematici Amstel: 1693, 1693

Identifier: Coll-33/Quarto A [27]

A scrawled list of partial book titles in David Gregory's hand and at least one other. On reverse is a line of text in Dutch, and possibly Gregory's signature. The smaller sheet is unlabelled, but appears to go with the larger one; its titles concern mostly gravity.

Dates: 1693

Identifier: Coll-1364/1/11

Memoranda et observata in Batavia 1693 Maio, 17 May 1693

Identifier: Coll-33/Quarto A [31]
Scope and Contents Batavia is a seventeenth-century cognomen for the Netherlands, to which David Gregory went in the spring of 1693, mostly to talk science with Christiaan Huygens. This document is a list of some books he wished to buy for himself and for friends back home, if he could find them. They covered Palladius, Thucydides, Dionysius of Halicarnassus, Erasmus, "all I can find of the Roman Authors at Amst[erdam]", and others. On the reverse is a list of topics he wished to discuss when he finally sat...

Observ: Eclipsos Lunaris Oxon 19 Octr 1697 et [Mercury] in [the Sun] 24 Oct 1697, October 1697, with 2 apparently attached documents from 17041693

Identifier: Coll-33/Quarto A [28]
Scope and Contents Two straightforward records of planetary eclipses, but meant, on palaeographic evidence, to be kept with a draft and a fair copy of a subsequent Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society article [Vol. XXIV, No. 293, for September-October 1704, p1704] about the Cassini curve, a model of how a periodic comet probably orbits. Folding and fading of these documents suggest that they were inserted not long after David Gregory generated his index of Quarto A (which he drew up around 1700)....
