Botanist, antiquarian, André Michaux explored the old world (Mesopotamia) and the new one (North America). From the first he brought back the eponymous stone (the 'Caillou Michaux') which would fascinate the first specialists of the cuneiform languages. From the second, the specimens he published in a reference flora. In both, his spirit of collection reached its highest degree. His voyages of exploration testify to the plurality of Enlightenment worlds.
