Item Description: Paris, Imprimerie Royale, 1734-1742. 6 volumes. 4to (247 x 190mm). With 6 engraved vignettes and 267 engraved folded plates. Contemporary calf, richly gilt ornamented spines, with Royal Crown, in 6 compartments with 2 red gilt lettered labels (a few volumes very lightly rubbed). The first edition of this famous entomological classic. Reaumur was among the greatest naturalists of his time and a pioneer in applied entomological research. Like most scientists of his period he had a very broad interest. His greatest work is the "Mémoires pour servir ." It describes the appearance, habits and locality of all known insects, and is a marvel of patient and accurate observation. "The most widely read portion of Réaumur's natural history of insects is probably the nine memoirs of Vol. V on the history of the bees, Réaumur lavished an enormous amount of time and observational and experimental skill on these productive social insects. His descriptions were minute and exacting in every detail, and his experiments were among the most ingenious he ever contrived. Réaumur was one of the first to undertake extensive quantative research on insects. He made some of the first tentative studies of communication among the bees. In short there was no aspect of the life cycle or behavior of bees too minute or too unimportant to escape his attention" (DSB).Nissen ZBI, 3315; En Français dans le texte, 145.

Z., Deckel mit Dreifachfilete in Goldprägung, Rücken über 5 erhabenen Bünden mit reicher Vergoldung und je 2 roten Rückenschildern, Stehkantenvergoldung, Rotschnitt (Ecken bestossen). Paris, L'Imprimerie Royale [sous Jacques Anisson-Duperron], 1734-42. Erstausgabe. Réaumurs klassisches Werk der Insektenkunde erschien Band für Band über einen Zeitraum von acht Jahren. Ein bei seinem Tod nahezu druckreif abgeschlossener siebter Band erschien schliesslich erst im 20. Jh. Der studierte Jurist war seit 1708 Mitglied der Pariser Académie des sciences, seine vielfältigen wissenschaftlichen Leistungen beinhalten u.a. Verbesserungen zur Gewinnung des Stahls (Zementstahl), die Erfindung des Weingeistthermometers und die Einführung der seinen Namen tragenden Temperaturskala mit der Einheit Grad Réaumur sowie zahlreiche tier- und pflanzenphysiologische Arbeiten. Die ersten Bände handeln von den Schmetterlingen und ihrer Entwicklung, beginnend mit der Einteilung der Raupen nach Zahl und Verteilung der Abdominalbeine, der Behaarung, Grösse, Färbung usw. "Réaumur beseitigte auch die Ueberspanntheiten der Swammerdam'schen Metamorphosen-Lehre. Während Swammerdam schon jedes Organ der Imago in der Raupe vorgebildet fand, wies Réaumur nachdrücklich auf die bei der Metamorphose stattfindenden Neubildungen und wirklichen Veränderungen hin" (F.S. Bodenheimer). Im fünften Band finden sich Aufsätze über die Blattwespen und Garten-Haarmücke und vor allem über das Leben der Bienen, deren Schilderung "die erste ist, die in allen wesentlichen Punkten unsern modernen Vorstellungen entspricht". Viele von Réaumur aufgezeigten Problemfelder entomologischer Erkenntnis fielen nach seinem Tod der Vergessenheit anheim und "sind erst heute wieder da aufgenommen worden, wo Réaumur sie verlassen hat" (F.S. Bodenheimer). "Ueberhaupt ist Réaumurs Werk das vollkommenste Muster, wie man die Natur beobachten und beschreiben soll" (G. B. Schmiedlein, Vollständiger Lehrbegriff der Entomologie, S. 32f.). - In Bd. I auf den Seiten 497 bis 512 unten etwas wasserfleckig. Modernes Exlibris F.C.J. Fischer. Nissen, ZBI, 3315; Dibner, Heralds of Science, 192; Bernard, Histoire de l'Imprimerie Royale du Louvre (1867), S. 173-174; Terrall, Catching Nature in the Act (2014), 80ff.; En français dans le texte 145; DSB XI, S. 327ff.; Bodenheimer, Materialien zur Geschichte der Entomologie bis Linné (1928/29), S.419ff. First edition. Réaumur's classic work on insects appeared one volume at a time over the course of eight years, another seventh volume was virtually completed at his death but remained unprinted until the 20th century. In part, logistical problems dictated the drawn-out production process, and the press of other work continually interfered with the writing. "As each volume appeared, the author acknowledged in print the contributions of his informants and collaborators. Réaumur also took theopportunity to respond the critics, to correct mistakes readers had pointed out, and occassionally even to announce discoveries made by other people. Although the nicely printed books gave the appearance of permanence, they were, like the work of observation and experiment they recorded, open to revision and correction" (Mary Terrall, pp. 80). Réaumur, a widely trained scientist who also made major contributions in geometry, metallurgy, and meteorology, applied in his six large volumes on insects, precise observation, detailed experimentation, and accurate recording to phenomena as varied as social life, parasitic habits, and leaf-mining. All six volumes were printed. Bookseller Inventory # B351030
