Piotr Daszkiewicz, Radosław Tarkowski


Geological studies in Paris in the 19th-century student book for young Polish emigrants.
A b s t r a c t. In 1860 a guide to scientific studies in Paris to youth was published through the efforts of Polish emigrants in France. This book was written by the students of the Polish School in Paris. The article analyzes information about the subjects in the undergraduate and the teaching of geology at the university, National Museum of Natural History and engineering schools, principally École des Mines. The interest of this guide is not limited therefore to the history of Polish-French scientific relations. Many Polish geologists and engineers working in South America, including Ernest Malinowski (1818–1899), Ignacy Domeyko (1802–1889), Edward Habich, Aleksander Babiński (1823–1899), Władysław Folkierski (1841–1904), have been trained in Paris. The edition of this book is also valuable evidence of a rich scientific activity of the Polish political emigration in France.
