The present copy conforms to Bengesco , in every respect, which is "page by page, line for line like the first edition" except for the "que ce ce fut" error on page , an error which was introduced by Cramer into the early printings, then doubtless not "fixed" as it was correct in the first place.

Dijon Paris Marc-Antoine Chartraire de Bourbonne, succ. Voir : Chaubard A. Dijon : Rare first edition. Plus une l. Published by Etienne Ledet et Compagnie, Amsterdam First edition. First edition, first issue, extremely rare large and thick paper copy, and in a beautiful contemporary binding, of Voltaire's only scientific work.
Voltaire "presented Newton as the discoverer of the true system of the world and the destroyer of the errors of Cartesianism" Norman. It is of interest, therefore, not only in itself but for what it tells us of Voltaire in relation to Newton , as an abiding memorial to the central role that Newton played in the development of Voltaire's philosophical thinking. Two issues of this first edition are known, printed for the publishers Etienne Ledet and Jacques Desbordes, of which the Ledet issue is generally accepted to be the first. Voltaire's first committed interest in science in general, and in Newton in particular, dates from his increasingly close relations with the English aristocrat, freethinker, and Jacobite Lord Bolingbroke and his circle from the end of onwards.
Bolingbroke left London for voluntary exile in France in , where he spent the next ten years. Influencing him towards an admiration of the Newtonian system and encouraging him to read Locke, Voltaire's contact with Bolingbroke and his circle ensured that when he crossed the channel in , and began the intellectually most formative period of his life, he had already become oriented towards contemporary English thought, to which the Newtonian system as presented in the Principia and the Opticks had made so decisive a contribution.
In London Voltaire met the prominent Newtonian Samuel Clarke , and seems to have regarded himself for a time as Clarke's disciple. He also came into contact with John Conduitt and his wife Catherine Barton , Newton's niece, as well as the astronomer Samuel Molyneux , who may have introduced Voltaire to his pupil Robert Smith , whose Compleat System of Opticks Voltaire went to some trouble to obtain. Voltaire was impressed by Pemberton's exposition of Newton's thoughts, which managed to convey a faithful impression of Newton's work in optics and gravitation without going into mathematical detail.
Its style and approach were in sharp contrast to the writings of Bernard Le Bovier de Fontenelle and other French popularisers of science of the day, with their emphasis on elegance and wit, often at the expense of scientific accuracy. In letter XIV, 'Sur Descartes et Newton,' while praising the overthrow of Aristotelianism by Descartes the philosopher, Voltaire makes plain his preference for Newton's theory of attraction over the vortex theory of Descartes the physicist.
Newton,' has very little to say. She sought to understand the nascent science of mechanics through the philosophy of Newton, Descartes, Leibniz, and Wolff, and in the process she participated in the debate between Cartesians and Newtonians.

A major cultural event of the last decade of the ancien regime, a beautiful monument to Voltaire, the greatest man that literature had produced. Pierre-Augustin Caron de Beaumarchais led a controversial life. Playwright The Marriage of Figaro , politician, publisher, entrepreneur, spy, supplier of munitions for the American Revolution, and an early champion of the rights of artists and intellectual property. Shortly after the death of Voltaire in , Beaumarchais set out to publish Voltaire's complete works, many of which were banned in France, and vehemently condemned by the Church.
He bought the rights to most of Voltaire's many manuscripts from publisher Charles-Joseph Panckoucke in To evade censorship, printing presses were set up in the small, neutral, independant state of Baden, at Kehl. Beaumarchais bought, with exclusivity, the complete foundry of the famous English type designer John Baskerville, for the Societe Litteraire Typographique, an organization he established to produce editions in which he was interested.
Three paper mills were purchased. Seventy volumes were published between to While the venture proved a financial failure, Beaumarchais was instrumental in preserving many of Voltaire's later works which otherwise might have been lost. The Kehl edition was banned on French territory until Baskerville font was revived by Americans in the 20th century.
