The positions were referred to the wrong star by Javelle. The correct star is BD -7 372. When re-reduced with respect to this star, Javelle's positions fall within a few arcseconds of the modern ones.
His relative positions are also good, and his descriptions match the galaxies. IC209 (whose place in Javelle's list is correct), referred to what Javelle supposed to be the same star (BD -7 364), was found and measured two nights later than IC206 and IC207.
