Abstract:

Proofs of engravings by René Just Haüy, Antoine Laurent Lavoisier, and Charles Messier. The Lavoisier engravings, apparently proofs sent to Charles Augustin de Coulomb for his approval, were to illustrate his Septième mémoire sur l'électricité et le magnétisme, and appeared on p. 504 of the Mémoires, 1789. One depicts Coulomb's torsion balance. They are signed by Lavoisier and Bory, vice-secretary of the Academy. The Haüy engraving, which appeared on p. 532 of the Mémoires, 1789, shows various crystalline structures. It is signed by Haüy and Bory. The Messier engraving shows the course of the comet of Dec. 1788-Jan. 1789, and appeared on p. 684 of the Mémoires, 1789. It is signed by Messier and Bory. All are housed in a cloth portfolio.
