E224 -- Avertissement



According to Eneström, this "relates to the treatise “Éclaircissemens sur les erreurs qu’on peut attribuer à la mesure du degré en France” by Lacaille that comes before the “Avertissiment” on pp. 337-346, where Euler’s treatise listed above as E215 is partly criticised. Euler maintains that the earth can be considered an ellipsoid by certain investigations." Publication: Documents Available:
