Description: OPTICS -- (COURTIVRON, G. Le Compasseur de Créquy-Montfort, marquis de). Traité d’optique où l’on donne la théorie de la lumière dans le système Newtonien, avec des nouvelles solutions des principaux problémes de dioptrique & de catoptrique. A Paris, chez Durand & Pessot, 1752. (2), vi, 192 (recte 202), (4) pp. W. 7 fold. engr. plates. 4°. Cont. mottled cf. w. raised bands & dec. gilt back. (Top of spine chipped, corners bumped, label gone, slightly browned in places). "In his treatise on optics Courtivron assailed the Cartesian concept of light and championed the Newtonian. He did not servilely follow Newton, however, for in his view color results from differences in speed rather than from those in weight. Furthermore, in affirming that dense mediums slow down light corpuscles, he made use of Fermat's principle of least time, recently revived by Maupertuis." (DSB). - First and only edition. Roller-G. I, 257; Wallis, 220.7; DSB III, 454. Estimated Price: € 750
