CHASLES, Michel (1793-1880) -- Catalogue de la bibliothèque scientifique, historique et littéraire de feu M. Michel Chasles (de l'Institut). Paris: A. Claudin, 27 June 1881. -- Supplément. Articles omis. Ouvrages en double. Paris: A. Claudin, 18 July 1881.

2 volumes, 8o (214 x 131 mm). Original printed wrappers (front wrapper detached on first volume).

Chasles was a highly influential mathematician and historian of arithmetics who made significant contributions to projective geometry. His vast library consisted principally of works of science which took twenty days to disperse (the supplement is almost always missing). Taylor, p.123 ("a means of identifying rare old scientific books"). (2)
