- Hi everyone,
If there is any interest here, Google has scanned the French text:
Mémoire sur la représentation des surfaces et les projections des cartes
By Auguste Tissot (1881)
Note that in Google's PDF download version there are about 7 blank pages
between the book cover and where the text begins.
Interesting! Mr. Tissot was the inventor of the Tissot indicatrix.
I knew that, but it's amusing to see a key publication.
I couldn't get it from Google; probably 'cos I'm not registrered?
I got the Google pdf from the Internet Archive:
See the link "All Files: HTML".
BTW: page 198 is unsharp at the right.
Pages 199-285 are apparently forbidden - they are not in the pdf.
There's no copyright on the book, so why should Google omit these pages?
