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.

Nice copy of this rare book.
