First edition.
Book compiling the lessons given at the Sorbonne by Gaston Darboux.

references: DSB [III, p.559 : "This collection of elegant essays on the application of analysis to curves and surfaces is held together by the author's deep understanding of the connections of various branches of mathematics. There are many applications and excursions into differential equations and dynamics. Among the subjects covered are that applicability and deformation of surfaces, the differential equation of Laplace and its applications and the study of geodesics and of minimal surfaces. Typical is the use of the moving trihedral."].
