CARNOT, Sadi (Analysis) [of] Reflexions sur... - Lot 128 - Astrid Guillon Maison de ventes aux enchères
CARNOT, Sadi (Analysis) [of] Reflexions sur la Puissance motrice du feu by Sadi Carnot (1824). September 1861. Autograph manuscript of 15 pp. in-8° uncensored, in a bi-foil with the handwritten title in black ink. The future president Sadi CARNOT, just out of Polytechnique, analyzes this founding text of modern thermodynamics that his uncle Nicolas Sadi CARNOT, also a polytechnician, had written almost at the same age. Our manuscript, in black ink, with a fine and elegant handwriting, presents corrections and some diagrams in the margin. Vertical fold on the right side of the document and small brown wetness without gravity on the upper right corner. Moving tribute and pertinent analysis. Exceptional document.
