Nicolas de Malezieux (1650-1727), a member of both Acade'mie des
sciences and Acade'mie franc,aise, was private teacher to the Dauphin's
son. His geometry lessons were published under the latter's name, with
the title: Elemens de ge'ometrie de monseigneur le Duc de Bourgogne
(Tre'voux-Paris 1705; translated into Latin, Pavia 1713, 1734).
Together with what should have been the young duke's notes from M.'s
teachings, the Elemens contained an Avertissement concerning infinitely
small quantities and a note on geometric points titled Re'flexions sur
les incommensurables. They were amply reviewed in 1705 in the Journal
des sc,avans.
