    Monsieur Lefèvre's invalid (Northern) Gannet

    Yes, my mistake, I misread it -- sorry. (Quite an odd 'G'; I don't know how I did not see the 'e', though.)

    Monsieur Lefèvre's invalid (Northern) Gannet

    No. The meaning is roughly: "A highly valuable naturalist, M. Auguste Lefèvre, owns, as every amateur knows, a collection of birds eggs among the most complete. He had the kindness to communicate me, about the ways to prepare them, to preserve and to form with them a superb collection, such as...
