About this Item

Cuvier, Georges (1769-1832). Letter signed to Samuel H. Christie (1784-1865). Paris, 29 October 1827. 1 sheet, on letterhead of the Académie Royale des Sciences. 222 x 169 mm. Trimmed at head, affecting printed letterhead but not the manuscript text. Very good. From the great French naturalist and zoologist Baron Cuvier, whose work helped to establish the modern sciences of paleontology and comparative anatomy, to British mathematician and physicist Samuel Hunter Christie, who made important contributions to the study of magnetism. Cuvier was perpetual secretary of the Académie des sciences and his letter to Christie, acknowledging Christie's donation of several of his papers on magnetism to the Académie, is written in that capacity. "L'Académie, Monsieur, a reçu les ouvrages que vous avez bien voulu lui adresser (extraits des transactions philosophiques) . . . J'ai l'honneur de vous offrir les remerciemens de l'Académie et de vous témoigner, en son nom, tout le prix qu'elle attache à ces publications . . ." [The Academy, Sir, received the books that you kindly send him (excerpts from Philosophical Transactions). . . I am pleased to offer the thanks of the Academy and to express to you on its behalf of all the value it attaches to these publications . . .]. Bookseller Inventory # 40223
