First edition. The posthumously published TELLIAMED, the main work of Benoit de Maillet (1656-1738), a well-traveled French diplomat and natural historian, is primarily a geological treatise. Presented as the theories of an Indian mystic encountered by a French missionary during an imaginary voyage to India, Maillet's work, based on his extensive travels throughout Egypt and other Mediterranean countries, attempts to relate man to geology and geology to the universe within the context of Cartesian logic. His theories are said to have influenced Diderot and Darwin. Cioranescu 41376. Sabin 43891.
