On the first flyleaf (a recent leaf) a former owner has made a long, neat ink inscription briefly describing Fontenelle, and where he acquired the book, adding it has been rebound 'without changing original sewing or margins.' Else Very Good. Addison's 'An Oration in Defence of the New Philosophy', delivered when he was 21 years old on July 7, 1693, is printed in pp. 147-51; I am not sure where it first appears (presumably somewhere before the 1715 English translation of Fontenelle). 'The first example in French of a learned work placed within the reach of an educated but non specialized public' (D.S.B. V: 59). OCLC locates only three copies, two in the US (Stanford, Chicago).
