Legros is identified as “Professor en Mathematiques rue Hurpoix au bout du Quay des Grands Augustins”. The main part of the manuscript is on longimetry, or surveying, and there is also a section on the use of Napier’s bones. A comparable manuscript, titled “Essay de longimetrie”, by “Legros, escrivain et professeur en mathématiques”, commencing “La science qui apprend à mesurer les lieux accessibles…” and concluding “… un acte affirmatif de ce que dessus”, undated, also illustrated with wash drawings, is in the Bibliothèque nationale de France, Ms Français 2054.
