Long and confusing!

I don't often have to look up old issues of Comptes Rendus, but whenever I do, I am always reminded of the genealogy chart from the wonderful University of Washington! Chart The entry at Wikipedia says that  Comptes rendus was initially published as Comptes rendus hebdomadaires des séances de l'Académie des Sciences. It itself continued an earlier series, Mémoires de l'Académie des Sciences, which had been published since 1666. A long history indeed; I just don't think there is a more confusing serial title in existence!
