During the later years of his life, Laplace lived much at Arcueil, where he had a country-place adjoining that of his friend C. L.
ARCUEIL, a town of northern France, in the department of Seine, on the Bievre, 22 m.
South of Arcueil, across the Bievre to the Luxembourg palace in Paris.
Bleaching, and the manufacture of bottle capsules, patent leather and other articles are carried on at Arcueil; and there are important stone-quarries.
In the later years of his life he had at Arcueil, where he died on the 6th of November 1822, a well-equipped laboratory, which became a centre frequented by some of the most distinguished scientific men of the time, their proceedings being published in three volumes, between 1807 and 1817, as the Memoires de la societe d'Arcueil.
