Édition de Myrtille Méricam-Bourdet et Catherine Volpilhac-Auger.

Dix-sept volumes, seventy two 000 articles, five 800 attribués à Diderot : dans cette entreprise designated que fut l'Encyclopédie, nous avons retenu a hundred articles rédigés par Diderot. Non pas toujours les plus connus, mais les plus représentatifs de son génie, qui consiste à répondre aux questions que parfois le lecteur ne se posait pas, et ainsi à éveiller les consciences. Ce choix reflète les différentes facettes de son activité : Diderot éditeur, qui corrige et complète les textes des collaborateurs de l'entreprise ; Diderot auteur, débordant d'enthousiasme quand le sujet le passionne, piquant l. a. curiosité du lecteur et l'entraînant sur des chemins nouveaux, en transformant les règles de l'écriture encyclopédique. Maniant aussi bien l'ironie que l. a. critique, il n'hésite pas à adopter un ton team of workers, en mettant en scène ses hésitations, ses interrogations, ses convictions. Une nouvelle manière de thinker est née.

Sample text

Sadly, they did not always fulfil their promise. The Antoinette IV, the company’s first monoplane, famously failed to cross the Channel in July 1909, ditching instead in the sea. It was the pilot on that occasion, wealthy biggame hunter Hubert Latham, who laid down the specification for the Antoinette Monobloc three-seater, shown here. In 1911 it was entered into the Concours Militaire, an Army competition to evaluate potential military aeroplanes. Streamlined to maximize performance, the wooden wing was braced internally; the warp control wires, used for lateral control, were also run inside the wing.

Its three 50-hp rotary engines were mounted between the wings. Each engine had its own controls and an independent chain drive linking it to the propeller shaft above. Together the engines drove a large fourbladed pusher propeller. The aircraft was sizeable for its day, carrying five passengers in its twin floats, or hulls. The pilot occupied the front seat in the starboard float, with two passengers behind him. Mounted above the floats was a biplane superstructure, with a tailplane and twin rudders carried on booms.

Three years were to pass before anyone else produced a plane capable of a comparable performance. 5m (28ft) Weight 322kg (710lb) endurance Approx 40min accommodation 1 pilot First Flight 23 June 1905 chapter one : 1843–1913 29 the sturdy wright flyer III was the world’s first practical powered aeroplane 30 Cody British Army AeroplAne no. 1 T he first powered aeroplane to fly in Britain was the brainchild of an expatriate American, S.
