First continuation of Leibniz’s Miscellanea berolinensia First appearing in 1710, the publication of the Miscellanea was revived in 1723 as the official journal of the Royal Prussian Society of Sciences after the death of Leibniz, its founding President.  The Continuatio comprises articles on literature, mathematics, and mechanics, with contributions by the astronomers Johann Wilhelm Wagner, Johann Philipp von Wurzelbauer, and Christfried Kirch, the mathematicians Chrisoph Langhansen, Jakob Hermann, and Philippe Naudé the younger, and the linguists Gisbert Cuper, Johann Georg Wachter, and Justus Christoph Dithmar.
