This volume of the Opera omnia includes Euler's correspondences in French with 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 et Johann Caspar Wettstein, and one letter to the German Johann Michael von Loen who is mentioned in the Euler-Bertrand correspondence. The first letter from Euler to d'Alembert recently rediscovered has been added as supplement.

Whereas the correspondence with Gabriel Cramer and Georges-Louis Lesage deals mainly with mathematical and physical subjects (Cramer's rule, Cramer's paradox, Lesage's theory of gravity), many letters exchanged with other Swiss correspondents provide new information about Euler's non-scientific activities, like the commerce of almanacs, negotiations with publishers, the support of young scientists in search of a position, and a variety of private matters.

-----

Ce volume contient les correspondances qu'Euler a entretenues avec plusieurs compatriotes suisses en langue francaise. Il s'agit de Louis Bertrand, Charles Bonnet, Marc-Michel Bousquet, Jean de Castillon, Gabriel Cramer, Philibert Cramer, Gaspard Cuentz, Albrecht von Haller, Georges-Louis Lesage et Johann Caspar Wettstein. Bien qu'il n'ait pas ete suisse, une lettre de Johann Michael von Loen, personnage mentionne dans la correspondance Euler-Bertrand, figure egalement dans ce volume. De plus, la premiere lettre d'Euler a d'Alembert recemment redecouverte a ete ajoutee en annexe.

Tandis que les correspondances avec Gabriel Cramer et Georges-Louis Lesage portent essentiellement sur des sujets de mathematiques et de physique (regle de Cramer, paradoxe de Cramer, theorie de la gravitation de Lesage), une grande partie des lettres qu'Euler a echangees avec d'autres compatriotes refletent ses activites non scientifiques, comme le commerce d'almanachs, les negociations avec des editeurs-imprimeurs a propos de la publication de ses ouvrages, ses interventions en faveur de jeunes scientifiques a la recherche d'un poste, et des affaires privees.
