        Dissertation sur la nature et la propagation du feu.Paris: Prault, 1744.

      A distinguished copy of the rare first separate edition of her important memoir on fire, in which she suggested that different colors of light carried different heating power and anticipated the existence of infrared radiation. This copy with a manuscript correction and diagram in the author's hand; finely bound and presented to Durival, with a portrait of Châtelet, together with Mairan's 1741 letter attacking her theory of vis viva, and including Chatelet's response to it. (Neville, Historical Chemical Library, 268).<br/><br/> Madame Châtelet (1706-1749), an intimate friend of Voltaire, is best known in the history of science for her translation of Newton's <i>Principia</i> into French. "At the end of August 1737 Mme. du Châtelet finished an important memoir on fire (<i>Dissertation sur la nature et la propagation du feu</i>), written for a prize competition organized by the Académie des Sciences. Voltaire entered the same contest, creating for this purpose a small chemistry laboratory at Cirey, but Mme. du Châtelet succeeded in preparing her memoir and sending it to the Academy without his knowledge. The results of the competition were announced on 16 April 1738: the prize was divided among Euler and two authors of second rank; only their memoirs were to be published. However, Voltaire arranged for his memoir and that of Mme. du Châtelet to be included with the winning memoirs; the first edition-identical to the definitive edition of 1752-appeared in April 1739. In 1744 Mme. du Châtelet secured the publication of a slightly modified edition of her memoir." (DSB). <br/><br/> This copy is bound with the famous pamphlet in which Jean Jacques D'ortous De Mairan, secretary of the Academy, attacked Châtelet's ideas about 'forces vives'. Mairan attempted to patronize Du Châtelet as a woman who did not understand the mathematical subtleties the field. "Clearly he did not expect Émilie to respond - he had experience, education and the Academy of Sciences on his side, and she was merely a self-taught marquise born for life of frivolous dissipation. [But] she did respond to Mairan's open letter, and she did so with spirit. Her response [also present in this copy] included nearly fifty pages of examples and counter-arguments to refute Mariran's letter. This public war of words between Émilie and the most important man in the Academy of Sciences proved she had, indeed, 'arrived' as a scholar to be taken seriously, despite the fact that, as a women, she could not actually become a member of the Academy." (Arianrhod, Seduced by Logic, pp. 128; see also Hagengruber, Emile du Châtelet between Leibniz and Newton, pp.34-39 for a detailed discussion of the Mairan-Châtelet controversy). <br/><br/> Some copies of the main memoire (like that in the Bibliothèque nationale de France and the one in the Neville Collection of the Chemical Heritage Foundation) have a small engraved diagram slipped in between page 54 and 55. That engraving is not present in this copy but added in the author's hand on page 55 with a correction in the text. <br/><br/> Very rare: we can find just two auction records the past 50 years (Sotheby's 1969 & 1971).. 8vo (196 x 119 mm), pp [iv] [1] 2-139 [1:blank]; [1-2] 3-38 [2]; [1-2] 3-37 [1:blank] [2]. Bound in fine contemporary polished calf with gilt super ex-libris 'Durival' to front board, richly gilt spine with five raised bands and floral decorations in compartments, red morocco title label, gilt leather ex-libris of Étienne Cluzel to front paste down, and with inserted engraved portrait of Émilie Chatelet (painted by Marie Anne Leir and engraved by P.G. Langlois, 1788), inscription to title page 'Donne à Durival; Juill. 1748.', some marginal annotations and underlining to all three works in pencil, page 55 of the main dissertation with a manuscript diagram, correction in the text, and explanation in the hand of Émilie Châtelet. Very fine and fresh throughout - an exceptional copy

        Traité des feux d'artifice, Ou l'on voit. I. La manière de préparer les Matières qui entrent dans la Composition des Feux d'Artifice. II. La Méthode de faire & de composer toutes fortes de Feux d'Artifice. III. Où l'on donne un idée de la Conduite des Feux de Joye.

      Haye, Chez J. Neaulme, 1741. Small 8vo. Cont. full mottled calf w. five raised bands on back, back richly gilt. Small holes and lack of leather to lower capital and back-hinge, due to insect-bites. Bdg. somewhat worn. Internally a bit of brownspotting and occationally a little soiling, but overall fine. Engr. frontispiece (= engr. t-p. dated 1707), 8 full-page engr. plates and 3 about half-page engr. vignettes. (6), XVIII, 394, (6) pp.. This is the Dutch reprint (in French) (also called the "pirated edition") of the first edition from 1706/07, with the engraved title-page from this. The second edition appeared in 1747. "In 1741 Neaulme issued a pirated edition which again, apart from variations on the title-page, is identical to the 1706 edition. Encouraged by this pirated edition Frezier wrote a second edition which appeared in 1747 in three differing versions." (C. Philip, p. 59). Very important reference-work on firewirks. "Frezier was probably one of the most important pyrotechnics in the mid 18th century..." (C. Philip, p. 58). He borrows heavily from other authors, but his works are interesting, also as they scrupulously cite the sources. The plates show different kinds of fireworks, with many illustrations on each and the vignettes show displays of fireworks, as this work also deals much with the conduct and displaying of these
