Lot 217: German astronomer and mathematician (1765–1831) known for discovering the gyroscope effect. Rare handwritten manuscript in German, unsigned, three pages on two adjoining sheets, 4.5 x 7.25, no date. A vivid algebraic word problem with five unknowns, solution, and discussion. In very good condition, with scattered foxing and dampstaining. Bohnenberger was appointed professor of mathematics and astronomy at the University of Tubingen in 1798, where he remained for the rest of his life. Autographic material from Bohnenberger is sought after and rarely offered, with this being an especially desirable example given its extensive mathematical content.
