Abstract
The paper gives an overview on the actual roots of Lambert's ideas on photometry including the excerpts of original sources as found in the Scientific library of castle Friedenstein in Gotha and in the Rostock university library, both in Germany, as well as some ideas on the system theoretical consequences and shortcomings and elegance of the concept of an angular cosine distribution. Further some almost lost paragraphs of Lambert's work on multiple reflection in dioptric systems are presented in translated and commented form.
