Text 5: Cuvier's Public Lecture at the Institut, 1798

This manuscript, in Cuvier's hand, is in a folder marked "Supplément général à tous les mémoires imprimés de la 2me. partie," in the box MS 628, which is part of the Cuvier papers preserved in the Bibliothèque Centrale, Muséum National d'Histoire Naturelle, Paris. Numbers in brackets refer to the pages of the manuscript (not numbered by Cuvier). Correct accents have been added where necessary, and (within brackets) a few extra marks of punctuation.

[1] Extrait d'un Mémoire sur un animal dont on trouve les ossements dans la pierre à plâtre des environs de Paris, & qui paraît ne plus exister vivant aujourd'hui.

lu à la Séance publique de l'Institut national, du 15 Vendémiaire an 7.

Il n'est plus personne qui ne sache que la terre que nous habitons présente de toutes parts des traces manifestes de grandes et violentes révolutions ; mais l'histoire de ces bouleversements n'a pu encore être débrouillée malgré les efforts de ceux qui en ont recueilli & comparé les documens.
