Dissertation physique à l'occasion du negre blanc by Maupertuis( Book )
21 editions published between 1744 and 1980 in 3 languages and held by 169 libraries worldwide
Manuscript notebook containing notes on osteologie and a hand-written facsimile of the 1744 edition of Maupertuis' Dissertation physique à l'occasion du negre blanc. Notes on osteologie are perhaps from a university course, and the text contains some corrections and cancellations. The text of the Maupertius, by contrast, is written neatly and follows the pagination of the original 1744 printed edition. The transcriber has been careful to copy the entire original title page, even including the printer's mark, and has even copied the collation marks at the bottom of the pages

Pierre Louis Moreau de Maupertuis (1698-1759) est passé à la postérité avant tout comme savant, mathématicien, astronome et même biologiste ; mais sa réflexion a également porté sur des thèmes philosophiques, principalement dans cet Essai que nous présentons ici et qui n'avait pas été réédité depuis le XVIIIe siècle. Ce texte commence sous les auspices de la philosophie et se conclut à l'ombre de la religion. Il nous plonge dans une atmosphère singulière due au langage du géomètre appliqué aux questions morales
