Historical Note on Essay pour les Coniques by Blaise Pascal

The full text of Blaise Pascal's Essay pour les Coniques was never actually published, and now appears to be irretrievably lost.

However, it is noted that Gottfried Wilhelm von Leibniz managed to get hold of a copy and was able to study it.
