This volume 1 includes 67 great folded plates signed Dheulland, Hérisset, and de la Gardette (the margin of one plate is damaged).

Content: Gallon, at the request of the Royal Academy, was charged with establishing a collection of inventions and machines that were submitted to the approval of the academicians, the goal being to publicize inventions as precisely as possible. For this, he went to the authors and, or the workers who had worked with them when the authors were dead. Inventors include: Lépine, Godin, Outhier, Dortous de Mairan, Pascal, Cassini, Clairaut, Nollet, Huygens, Perrault, Cusset, and many others.

Forerunner of the great encyclopedia by Diderot / d'Alembert, this original edition adorned with beautiful illustrated folding plates draws the panorama of the scientific knowledge of the time.

Rare collection (7 volumes), very hard to gather.

Nice copy of this rare book.

For information the complete edition in 7 volumes is being traded between 10,000 and 15,000 euros.

  • The description by the seller was misleading:
    "gallery of worms on a few pages of volume 2" = 192 of 438 pages
    "small gallery of worms in volume 3"= gallery perforating the book : 486 pages affected!
