Still good, wide-margined copy. ---- DSB XIII pp. 584-7; Cantor II, 526-7. - FIRST EDITION. "From the papers Varignon left at his death, most of which are now lost, his disciples assembled several posthumous works: Nouvelle mécanique (announced in the Project of 1687) and Eclaircissemens sur l'analyse des infiniment petits, both published in 1725, and Élémens de mathématiques (1731), which was based on his courses at the Collège Mazarin." (DSB XIII, p. 585). Very Good.
