Rare. In this doctoral thesis, which discusses the author's \t{Experimental Researches on the Hardness of Bodies}, the first 50 pages is given over to a good introductory history of the subject that gives descriptions of the researches of Hyghens, Muschenbroek, Romé de l'Isle, Werner, Haüy, Wollaston, Babbage, Mohs, Frankenheim, Seebeck, Franz, and Vicat. This is followed by a definition of the hardness property, a description of the apparatus used to test for it, places where errors are encountered, and results derived. Finally, Hugueny compares the results of his research from various methods.
