MS. Rigaud 19: Thirty-nine, of which five are by Robertson, 1794-1828, 118 leaves.

MS. Rigaud 20: Seventeen, at fol. 11 for instance, there is a paper 'on the motion of Lord Stanhope's printing press', and some others are mechanical or astronomical, dated May 16, 1820, 90 leaves.

These were the product of prof. Rigaud's horae subsecivae, but the term 'mathematical' is rather widely used to include the applied sciences.
