 Notes:  "L'auteur ayant chez lui tous les exemplaires de son livre, il les signera avant de les fournir aux libraires. Les cours se font chez l'auteur, en son cabinet privilegié du roi, Hôtel de Mouy, rue Daphine, près le Pont Neuf. Ce cours est composé de plus de 60 expériences nouvelles, & de 16 de comparaison, qui font aussi partie de ce traité." Author's authenticating signature "Rabiqueau" on page 6, at end of preface (some copies unsigned). "Le prix 6 liv. broché." Collation: 8vo: [pi]² A-S⁸ T⁴ [chi]² [$4 (-T3,4) signed]; 152 leaves, pages [4 unnumbered] 1-296 [4 unnumbered] [misprinting 144 as ^44, 145 as 154] + Planche 1re.-10. The bifolium at the end contains the approbation, privilège, and registration dated 13 April 1753. Copies are frequently bound with two separately printed supplementary works, "Lettre electrique sur la mort de M. Richmann", concerning an event reported in the Gazette d'Allemagne of 14 September 1753; and "Relation curieuse et interessante pour le progrès de la physique et de la médecine", concerning an event that took place on 22 May 1756, concluding with "Lettre de M. Rabiqueau ... insérée au Mercure du premier Novembre 1756". Both have half titles only, undated. The first consists of 8 leaves: A⁸ [A2-4 signed A1-3, with arabic numeration], pages [2] (half title, verso blank), [1] 2-14 (text). The second consists of 16 leaves: A⁸(-A1) B⁸(-B8) C² [$4 (-A1,2, C2) signed, with roman numeration], pages [2] (half title, verso blank), 5-34 (text of "Lettre de M. Rabiqueau", with its own caption title, on pages 31-34). Four pages of errata (first leaf signed A) were also printed, presumably at the same time as the "Relation", containing "Errata à augmenter au Spectacle du feu" (further corrections, revisions and additions), and corrections and revisions for both the "Lettre sur la mort de M. Richmann" and the "Relation", with a concluding note on the meaning of "feu".
