With the Appendix: Papyrus bilingue, et livre magique, postérieurement reçus. Caspar Jacob Christiaan Reuvens (1793-1835), Dutch Egyptologist. Also known as Caspari Jacobi Christiani Reuvens, Gaspard Jacob Chrétien Reuvens, Casparus Jacobus Christianus Reuvens, and Kaspar Jakob Christian Reuvens. Studied law and classics in Amsterdam and Leiden but became interested in archaeology during a stay in Paris. He was appointed first director of the Leiden Museum of Antiquities and first professor of archaeology in the Netherlands (Leiden University, 1818-1835). It was Reuvens who transformed the mediocre archaeological cabinet of Leiden University to the National Museum of Antiquities of the Netherlands. Backed by King William I, he acquired the successive collections of De Lescluze, Cimba, and Anastasi, as well as numerous classical collections. Among his books are "Epimetrum de quibusdam monumentis cum Pollionis historia conjunctis" (1820); and "Periculum animadversionum archaeologicarum ad cippos Punicos Humbertianos Musei Antiquarii Lugduno-Batavi" (1822). Antoine-Jean Letronne (1787-1848) was a French archaeologist, director of the Ecole des Chartes, and inspector-general of the University of France. In 1831 he became professor of history in the College de France, a chair he exchanged in 1838 for that of archaeology. In 1840 he became the keeper of the national archives.
