L'Hospital hired his former tutor Johann Bernoulli to "work on what I shall ask you ... and also to communicate to me your discoveries, with the request not to mention them to others." The first calculus text resulted in 1696. It contained the famous "L'Hospital's rule," which we now know was the work of Bernoulli.
