Go back to my first email on this thread and examine the image. In the image, you will find Lalande; Lynn (Horary Tables) and an 1827 reference with a different name than you have, but the work seems to be correct.If you are a French speaker, would you mind translating the lengthy title of the Lalande work. Thank you!BradOn Mar 22, 2017 6:20 PM, "Paul Bedel" <NoReply_PaulBedel@fer3.com> wrote:
Yes, there were tabular predecessors:
1793: Jérôme Lalande, after Cassini in 1770,
1827: Thomas Lynn (horary tables),
1829: maybe Janet Taylor (??).
For more details, see Charles H. Cotter in "History of Nautical Astronomy". Why G. Littlehales hav'nt note their name? What was the reason why ? I have no answer.
