Facsimile Reprint of the First Edition in English of Sur l'homme et le developpement de ses facultés, essai d'une physique sociale (1835). xiii + Facsimile Reprint [x, 5-126 pp. printed in double columns; 7 plates]. Original cloth, large 8vo. Very Good, without dust jacket. While not named on the title page of the 1842 Edinburgh edition, the translators were the prominent Edinburgh anatomist, Robert Knox (1791-1862), and Thomas Smibert, who in 1850 wrote the well-known but oft-erroneous Clans of the Highlands of Scotland. "Applying statistics to social phenomena, [Quetelet] developed the concept of the 'average man'; and established the theoretical foundations for the use of statistics in social physics or, as it is now known, sociology. Thus, he is considered by many to be the founder of modern quantitative social science. A Treatise on Man (1835; tr., 1842) is his best-known work. See study by F. H. Hankins (1908, repr. 1968)" (Columbia Encyclopedia, 5th ed.). "In Sur l'homme et le developpement de ses facultés, essai d'une physique sociale (1835) Quetelet presented his conception of the average man as the central value about which measurements of a human trait are grouped according to the normal curve" (MacTutor Web site).
