Jacques Ozanam (1640-1717) French mathematician. Of a Catholic family with Jewish descent, Ozanam discarded theological study on the death of his father and began offering private instruction in mathematics, a subject in which he was apparently self-taught. This present work contains much of interest to mathematical study on the subject of geometrical theories.£ 300.00 Antiquates Ref: 11862
