Caption: Manuscript by Lomonosov of his notes on chemistry and optics. Mikhail Lomonosov (1711-65) was a Russian astronomer and polymath. Born in a remote fishing village, he went to Moscow to gain his education. After studying abroad, he returned to Russia and founded the Moscow State University (now named after him). He also served as a secretary of state for Russia. He showed that Boyle's phlogiston theory was incorrect. Other work included astronomy, natural history, and the physics of heat. He was also a poet, writer and mosaic artist.
