Abstract

In the composition of chapter II of Bouvard et Pécuchet (the chapter on agriculture), Flaubert draws not only from his copious reading notes but also from information coming from experts of his time. This paper investigates the sixteen pages of annotations that the agronomist Jules Godefroy sent him in Autumn 1874. The pages contain a series of potential mistakes the two main characters of the novel can make.
