Ozanam, Jacques. La geometrie pratique, contenant la trigonométrie théorique & pratique, la longimétrie, la planimétrie, & la stéréometrie. Avec un petit traité de l'arithmetique par géometrie. Paris: Charles-Antoine Jombert, 1736. 16mo (16.2 cm, 6.375"). , 308, [20 (index)] pp.; 8 fold. plts. $300.00
Corrected and enlarged edition, following the first of 1684. Ozanam (1640–1718) was a largely self-taught mathematician who became a teacher and a member of the Académie des Sciences. He published a number of well-regarded treatises on mathematics, including the much-reprinted Dictionnaire mathématique — the first work of its kind in French — and the groundbreaking Récréations mathématiques et physiques. The present work on practical geometry is => illustrated with eight tipped-in folding engraved plates, while its accompanying "petit traité" features numerous in-text diagrams.
Contemporary mottled roan, spine gilt extra with raised bands and gilt-stamped leather title-label; acid-pitted and worn, especially at joints and extremities. All edges stained red. One plate creased near fold with outer edge slightly proud. Pages and plates clean. (40302) Please RESHELVE This.
