Abstract :
Discusses and publishes manuscript documents (three letters, two Notices, and related drawings) by the Frenchman Marcel de Serres describing, in varying levels of detail, the lithography machines and techniques he observed during his travels in Austria in the early 19th century.re held in the archives at the Conservatoire national des arts et métiers (CNAM). Examines an early, previously unpublished notice providing a general overview of the machines and techniques in the context of some of his later, more detailed publications, thereby tracing the author's increasing understanding of the processes of lithography.ion of these documents reveals little new information about the state of knowledge of early lithography at the time, but does suggest that they are useful indicators 'of the context in which such notices were produced, and the difficulties faced by those seeking to report to their homeland information on technical innovations and discoveries abroad'. ;
