Condition Report

Rare first edition. An important work of comparative linguistics, divided into eight dissertations, which was extremely successful and was reprinted several times. Bergier strongly supports the primacy of Hebrew by referring to the story of the Tower of Babel. In the ElÚmens primitifs des langues he proposes the identification of the primitive language with Hebrew, since the whole book is destined to bring you back, by parallel trailing, the roots of French, Latin and Greek. Ciorancescu, A. 18.s. 11332. Cfr. Jacques Bourquin, Galerie des linguistes franc-comtois, 2003, pp. 33-40; Luca Nobile Il Trattato della formazione meccanica delle lingue di Charles de Brosses: un caso di materialismo linguistico-cognitivo nell'etÓ dei Lumi, Roma UniversitÓ "La Sapienza" 2005, Tesi Dottorato di Ricerca.
