About this book

Language: French

The first volume in a series of 36.

"...a marvellous monument to Buffon's vision, and to Schmitt's scholarship. Schmitt's Introduction is informative, insightful and comes complete with up-to-date references to the secondary literature. His extensive notes to Buffon's text provide a detailed commentary, helping the reader notice subtleties of language, references to other thinkers and other uses of similar phrases or ideas elsewhere in the later volumes" - Matthew Cobb, TLS December 21/28, 2007.
