    Hello Paul,

    In fact, the three references you specify are specified by Littlehales.  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!

    Brad

    Hi Brad,

    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.

    Paul.
