It was to be enriched by a commentary on the work inspired by the one accompanying the latin edition of T. Le Sueur and F. Jacquier and by theoretical supplements drawn essentially from the most recent works of Clairaut. In 1746, she obtained Clairaut's collaboration as adviser, as reviser of her translation and her commentaries and as author of theoretical supplements to her work. In 1749, she came to Paris to finish her book in collaboration with Clairaut. The revelation of an unexpected and late pregnancy increased her desire to complete the project before the confinement that she dreaded. At the end of June she died of childbed fever. Before her death she entrusted the manuscript of her annotated translation of the Principia to the librarian of the Biblothèque du Roi in Paris. This work, which appeared in 1759, remains the sole french translation of the Principia. Her work contributed to the great progress made by Newtonian science in the middle of the eighteenth century". (DSB III pp. 215/217) ---- Babson N° 28 : "This is the only french translation ever published. It is interesting because of the personality of the translator, Mme Marquise Du Châtelet, the paramour of Voltaire, who contributes an interesting préface historique. The work is divided into two parts, the first being a translation of the Principia, from the edition of 1726, and the second a commentary on some of the principles relative to the system of the world, taken mostly from the works of M. Clairaut, the teacher of the brilliant Marquise" ** (ARB1). Seller Inventory # 7230

About this Item: Desaint & Saillant; Lambert, Paris, 1759. First edition. FIRST FRENCH EDITION OF PRINCIPIA. First edition in French of Newton's Principia, "the greatest work in the history of science" (PMM), translated by Madame du Châtelet, intimate of Voltaire, with the assistance of Alexis-Claude Clairaut; this is an exceptional copy in original wrappers. Begun in 1745 but published posthumously, this is her most important work. It was the first translation into a language other than English and is "still the only French translation ever made . The first volume contains, in addition to Books I and II [of Principia], a 'preface historique' and a poem by Voltaire. The second volume contains Book III and, separately paginated, 'Exposition abrégée du système du monde, et explication des principaux phénomenes astronomiques tirée des Principes de M. Newton' (pp. 1-116) . There was also 'Solution analytique des principaux problèmes qui concernent le système du monde' (pp. 117-286)" (Gjertsen, Newton Handbook, p. 480). Voltaire's 'preface historique' is partly an extravagant Éloge of his late mistress but also a survey of Newton's philosophical position and the problems of translation. "Known throughout intellectual Europe as Émilie, the name popularized by Voltaire, Mme. du Châtelet-beyond the influence that she had for some fifteen years on the orientation of Voltaire's work and on his public activity-contributed to the vitality of French scientific life and to the parallel diffusion of Newtonianism and Leibnizian epistemology. Her affairs entertained the fashionable world of her period, yet her last moments revealed the sincerity of her scientific vocation. Although she limited her efforts to commentary and synthesis, her work contributed to the great progress made by Newtonian science in the middle of the eighteenth century" (DSB). "For a long time, Emilie du Châtelet's French translation and her commentary on Newton's Philosophiae naturalis principia mathematica provided the only access to Newton's principles of natural philosophy in French and, together with her commentary on Leibniz's philosophy in the Institutions de physique, it thus greatly influenced scientific discourse in the eighteenth century and can be said to have furthered both transnational and European scientific collaboration" (Winter, p. 174). A few copies of this work were issued with a date of 1756. "Although the first issue does have the date 1756 on its title page, it is very rare and may well have been, according to Cohen, 'a preliminary edition, not made available for general sale to the public.' He managed to trace only twelve" (Gjertsen). This copy is complete with Cotes's preface, which is sometimes lacking. The Principia, first published in 1687, elucidated the universal physical laws of gravitation and motion which lie behind phenomena described by Newton's great predecessors Copernicus, Galileo and Kepler. Newton established the mathematical basis for the motion of bodies in unresisting media (the law of inertia); the motion of fluids and the effect of friction on bodies moving through fluids; and, most importantly, set forth the law of universal gravitation and its unifying role in the cosmos. "For the first time a single mathematical law could explain the motion of objects on earth as well as the phenomena of the heavens . It was this grand conception that produced a general revolution in human thought, equalled perhaps only by that following Darwin's Origin of Species" (PMM). In 1713 a second edition was published, edited by Roger Cotes. Numerous changes were made to the text, and Cotes also provided an important preface in which he undertook to explain and defend Newton's account of gravity. The definitive third edition, the last to be corrected by Newton himself, was edited by Henry Pemberton and was published in 1726. A few changes were made but, compared to 1713, there were, in Cohen's phrase, no 'bold and exciting innovations.' An English translation, by Andrew Motte, was published in 1729, and the so-called 'Jesuits' edition, edited by F. Jacquier and T. Le Seur, appeared in three volumes (in Latin) in 1739-1742. No further editions were published until Mme. du Châtelet's French translation. On 22 June 1725 Gabrielle-Émilie married Florent-Claude, marquis du Châtelet and count of Lomont, who, after spending several years with her when he was governor of the city of Semur-en-Auxois, pursued a military career and visited her only briefly. After returning to Paris in 1730, Émilie du Châtelet led a glittering existence and had several affairs before becoming intimate, in 1733, with Voltaire, who had just completed his Lettres philosophiques. Several of these lettres dealt with Newton's philosophy and were given for review to Pierre-Louis Maupertuis, the author of the first French work devoted to the Newtonian world system, the Discours sur la figure des astres (1732). Mme. du Châtelet in her turn developed a very cordial friendship with Maupertuis and with another ardent Newtonian, Alexis-Claude Clairaut. The mathematics lessons that she received from Maupertuis at the beginning of 1734 awakened her scientific inclinations. In June 1734 Voltaire, threatened with arrest, withdrew to one of Mme. du Châtelet's properties, the chäteau at Cirey in Champagne, the restoration of which he undertook. The marquise spent a few months there at the end of 1734 and then made several prolonged stays. Devoting their time variously to their literary endeavors, metaphysical, philosophical, and scientific discussions, and a very refined worldly existence, she and Voltaire made the château at Cirey one of the most brilliant centres of French literary and philosophical life. The stay at Cirey, at the end of 1735, of Francesco Algarotti, who was preparing a popularization of Newtonian optics, II newtonianismo per le dame, which appeared in 1737, incited Voltaire and Mme. du Châtelet to undertake a work propagandizing Newtonian science, and she began a systematic study of Newton's work, writing an.

Cette sortie a ensuite été retardée à 1759 par la perte de planches et le travail de Clairaut, ou par d'autres raisons inconnues. Les deux tomes sont bien à la date de 1756. La préface de Cotes est présente. L' "Avertissement" en deuxième état. (Les bandeaux sont différents et le texte a été recomposé, avec quelques modifications). Emilie du Châtelet, amie intime de Voltaire, a par cette traduction annotée des "Principia" de Newton largement contribué à la diffusion des idées newtoniennes en France. "On trouvera souvent Newton plus intelligible dans cette traduction que dans l'original & même que dans la traduction anglaise." (Avertissement). Cohen, The French translation of Isaac Newton's Philosophiae., Archives internationales des sciences 21, 1968. Frédéric Chambat & Dominique Varry, Faut-il faire une description bibliographique des Principes mathématiques ?, Centre international d'étude du xviiie siècle. Très bel exemplaire. *-------* First and sole French translation of Newton's "Principia". FIRST ISSUE. One of the very rare copies with both titles dated 1756, about 12 copies are known with this title page. This 1756 edition was presumably issued in a very small number of copies and then quickly withdrawn on account of its imperfections. The Cotes preface is present. Second state of the "Avertissement". "Known throughout intellectual Europe as Emilie, the name popularized by Voltaire, Mme du Châtelet - beyond the influence she had for some fifteen years on the orientation of Voltaire's works and on his public activity - contributed to the vitality of French scientific life to the parallel diffusion of Newtonianism and Leibnizian epistemology. Her affairs entertained the faishionable world of her period, yet her last moments revealed the sincerity of her scientific vocation. Although she limited her efforts to commentary and synthesis, her work contributed to the great progress made by Newtonian science in the middle of the eighteenth century". DSB 3, 215- 217.
