First edition.The Abbé Moigno (1804-1844), sometime Jesuit priest, and from 1873 canon of the collegiate chapter of the Basilica of Saint Denis in Paris, was also, from 1836, professor of mathematics at the College of Sainte-Geneviève, Rue des Postes. This, his best known mathematical work, was inspired directly by Augustin-Louis Cauchy (1789-1857), whom Moigno considered his master (Cauchy, as well as being one of the greatest French mathematicians of the nineteenth century, was, like Moigno, a hyper-reactionary and ultramontane legitimist supporter of the Bourbon claim to the French throne, only tolerated at the Académie des sciences for his sheer brillance. Moigno left the Jesuit order while working on the second volume, of this work finally published in 1844, going on to write a number of notorious apologetic works such as Les splendeurs de la foi (1879-1883) and Les livres saints et la science (1884).
