Exceptionally rare 1748 Bernoulli letter
Description  

Important Swiss mathematician and physicist (1700–1782) known for his applications of mathematics to fluid mechanics. ALS in French, one page, 7.25 x 9.75, July 7, 1748. In full (translated): “The honor to be associated to the most renowned company in the world is by itself without a doubt an inestimable price to any man sentient of glory, and all the circumstances converge to make it even more precious to me in particular. It is one [glory], Sir, to see that you are taking a part in my election and have no doubt that you have contributed to it in my favor. Please be assured of my true gratitude; also have the kindness to testify to that fact to all that you know having honored me by their suffrage. I am particularly congratulating myself, Sir, to have the honor to be your colleague and I hope that you will find me even more worthy of your commerce and that it would not only be only a commerce of civility. I desire more than ever to take advantage of your insight that I have always respected.” Moderate foxing and toning to edges (affecting the signature area), otherwise fine condition. A beautifully penned letter by the influential scientist, the first we have ever offered. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
