|"Colonel Gustave Paulin, Commandant of the Paris fire brigade designed & built a diving helmet for use in chemical fires. He was a friend of biologist Henri Milne, who had the apparatus adapted for underwater use. He used it on an expedition in 1844, later writing a 3-Vol. natuarl history of Crustacea.
"Although it failed to make the bestseller list, his work was known to Jules Verne. In Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, Professor Aronnax, ..., was Professor of Natural History at the Paris Museum and clearly based on Milne Edwards." - Trevor Norton, _Stars Beneath The Sea_, 1999. "|
