Enestrom 418; Lalande 526; Roller-Goodman I, 375; DSB IV, p.472. FIRST EDITION of Euler's second theory of the lunar motion. Euler was assisted by his son Johann, Wolfgang Kraft and Johann Lexell. "From 1770 to 1772 Euler elaborated his second theory of lunar motion... but the scientists assisting Euler were not mere secretaries; he discussed the general scheme of the work with them, and they developed his ideas, calculated tables, and sometimes compiled examples. The enormous Theoria muotuum lunae... was thus completed with the help of Johann Albert Euler, Krafft, and Lexell - all of whom are credited on the title-page."
