Description We give an overview of the seventh volume of series IVA of the Birkhäuser edition of Leonhard Euler’s complete works and correspondence. This volume contains Euler’s correspondence in French with ten of his Swiss countrymen: Louis Bertrand, Charles Bonnet, Marc-Michel Bousquet, Jean de Castillon, Gabriel Cramer, Philibert Cramer, Gaspard Cuentz, Albrecht von Haller, Georges-Louis Lesage and Johan Caspar Wettstein. A letter of the German Johann Michael von Loën to Euler, mentioned in the Euler-Bertrand letter exchange is also included as well as the recently rediscovered first letter of Euler to Jean le Rond d’Alembert in supplement. The letters cover a large range of topics also outside Euler’s mathematical and physical interests giving a new insight into his non-scientific activities, and thus casting also a new light on this great scientist as a person.
Niniejsze opracowanie poświęcone jest omówieniu siódmego tomu serii IVA dzieł zebranych Leonarda Eulera wydanego przez oficynę Birkhaeuser. Tom ten zawiera korespondencję Eulera w języku francuskim adresowaną do dziesięciu jego szwajcarskich rodaków: Ludwika Bertranda, Karola Bonneta, Marka-Michała Bousqueta, Jana de Castillon, Gabriela Cramera, Filiberta Cramera, Kacpra Cuentza, Alberta von Hallera, Jerzego-Ludwika Lesage’a i Jana Kacpra Wettsteina. Dodatkowo uwzględniono w nim list Niemca Jana Michała von Loëna, wspomnianego w korespondencji Eulera z Bertrandem, oraz niedawno ponownie odkryty pierwszy list Eulera do Jana Le Rond d’Alemberta. Listy mają szeroki zakres tematyczny wybiegający poza zainteresowania matematyczno-fizyczne Eulera, dając tym samym nowy wgląd w pozanaukowe życie tego ostatniego i rzucając nowe światło na sylwetkę tego wielkiego naukowca.
