    =============
    
    I'm hesitant to correct Zorbec Legras about a French navigational
    publication, but I have here an illustration of the title page of the first
    issue of "La Connoissance des Temps" (as it was spelled then), which was
    for the year 1679, not 1769.
    
    George.
