références: DSB [V, p.61 : "As a member of the Academy of Sciences, Fontenelle also wished to do work of his own. In 1727, as a "Suite des mémoires de l'Académie royale des sciences", he published the Eléments de la géométrie de l'infini... He had worked on it for a long time, probably since the period of his preface to the Analyse des infiniment petits. The term élémens is to be understood in the sense of "first principles". According to Fontenelle, none of the geometers who had invented or employed the calculus of infinity had given a general theory of it. That is what he proposed to do. The work is divided into a preface relating the history of this branch of calculus and into two main parts : Système général de l'infini and Différentes applications ou remarques"].
