Dear all historians,
I happen to have in hands an interesting mathematical book (the Port-Royal
Geometry) whose binding bears the (heraldic) arms of the "Grand Dauphin".

Louis de France (1661-1711), called ³le Grand Dauphin², was Louis XIV's son.
He died before he could have reigned, and it was his grandson who finally
inherited the throne of France, under the name of Louis XV.
All I know about Grand Dauphin's education is that it was managed by
Bossuet.
My question is about who (obviously not Bossuet) was in charge for teaching
him enough mathematics.
