About this Item

3 volumes. 8°, contemporary calf (joints of volume I cracked, and spine defective at foot; spine of volume III also defective at foot; other binding wear), flat spines gilt with contrasting leather lettering and numbering pieces, edges sprinkled red. Light toning. Overall a very good set. lxxxiv, 418 pp.; (3 ll.), 511 pp.; (3 ll.), 584 pp. *** FIRST EDITION. Brisson began his career as a natural historian, but after the death of his teacher Réaumur was unable to continue due to Buffon's hostility. He then turned to experimental physics, studying under the Abbé Nollet. This Traité élémentaire gives the essentials of his courses at Navarre and Paris, and includes important discoveries on gases. Later editions appeared in 1797, 1800 and 1803. As a teacher Brisson had considerable influence: for example, his student P.I. Strakhov returned to his native Russia to teach experimental physics at the University of Moscow, and translated the Traité into Russian.*** Not in National Library of Medicine Eighteenth-Century STC (cf. p. 65, listing volume I only of the second edition, 1797).
