Claude Hardy (ca.1604-1678) was a French intellectual, lawyer, and translator of scientific tracts. He was involved with Marin Mersenne's community of mathematicians and scientists and was a friend of Descartes. He published his Latin translation of Euclid’s Data in 1625, which also included the first printed edition of the original Greek text.
