About This Item

Paris, 1843. Octavo lettersheet folded and addressed on obverse to 'Mme Biot au Collège de France' on a matter of retaining an architect to repair Mme. Biot's quarters. [signed: Letronne]. Letronne was a savant known for his erudition in the geography and paleography of the ancient world. He collaborated with Jean-Baptiste BIOT on 'Mémoire sur le Zodiaque circulaire de Denderah,' annotated ROLLIN's complete works and published several tomes on Egyptology. In the cartographic world, Letronne is implicated with Washington Irving in having helped to popularize the historically incorrect notion that medieval savants held the world to be flat -- a now wide-spread belief of our time but one that has no scholarly foundation.. Fine.
