A physicist and an inventor, Jules Janssen (1824-1907) devoted his life to astronomical research. He spent many years traveling around the world to observe total Solar eclipses, demonstrating that a new era of science had just come thanks to the use of both spectroscopy and photography, and persuading the French Government of the necessity of founding a new observatory near Paris. He became its director in 1875. There, at Meudon, he began routine photographic recordings of the Sun surface and had a big refractor and a big reflector built. Meanwhile, he also succeeded in building an Observatory

Trouvelot à Meudon : une "affaire" et huit pastels by Françoise Launay( Book )

1 edition published in 2003 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Léopold Trouvelot (1827-1895) is much [more] notorious in the USA than he is in France. He was to get the position of an official astronomer - the only one besides Janssen - at the Meudon observatory in 1882 but before that he had misguidedly introduced the Gypsy Moth into North America, leading to widespread forest defoliation. Trouvelot is also known overseas by a rare and magnificent portfolio of 15 chromolithographs selected from his best astronomical drawings, which was issued by Scribner's Sons in 1882."
