Content Summary

According to Eneström, this relates to Nicolas-Louis de Lacaille's treatise "Éclaircissemens sur les erreurs qu'on peut attribuer à la mesure du degré en France" published before the “Avertissiment” on pp. 337-346, where Euler’s treatise (listed above as E215) is partly criticized. Euler maintains that the earth can be considered an ellipsoid by certain investigations.
