We hope, in this way, to constitute gradually a collection of medals which will gratify at once and the same time the scientific curiosity and the artistic cravings of our readers. Each medal will be described and some brief information added with regard to both the man of science honored and the sculptor who designed the medal. </p><p>Plan of each description : Man of science represented. Dates and </p><p>places of birth and death. Nationality. Branch of science, main achievement. Occasion of the celebration. Main biography. </p><p>Artist. Dates and place of birth and death. Size of the medal. Collection from which the specimen reproduced has been borrowed. Publisher (if known). Description of the medal (if a photograph is included it will suf- </p><p>fice to reproduce the legend). Obverse. Reverse. (Followed by translation of the legends into English if they are written in a </p><p>language not generally known). </p><p>* * * </p><p>The first series of one hundred will be devoted to modern medals, medals which were struck to commemorate men of science of the </p><p>IX'th and XXth centuries. When the series is completed, we will print indexes of the scientists and artists represented. </p><p>* * </p><p>No. 1. MICHEL EUGANE CHEVREUL (Angers, 1786-1889).
