2Title:  Augustin Louis Cauchy manuscript volume of mathematics lectures, 1824-1825   
 Creator:  Cauchy, Augustin LouisBaron, 1789-1857 | La Moriciáere, Christophe Louis Lâeon Juchault de, 1806-1865 
 Notes:  The only recorded set of notes taken from French mathematician Augustin Louis Cauchy's first-year undergraduate lectures at the âEcole Polytechnique for the years 1824-1825, taken by his student Christophe Louis Lâeon Juchault de La Moriciáere. These notes are of considerable historical importance: although the lectures on analysis were published in four great treatises, the content of the lectures evolved significantly during Cauchy's 15 years of teaching so that the content of a particular series of lectures may differ significantly from the published version. Moreover, the notes provide a unique insight into Cauchy's lectures on mechanics, which were never published.
