    You can find it on the "Gallica" website of the Biblioth�que Nationale in
    Paris (http://gallica.bnf.fr/).
    Go to "Recherche" and just enter "Royal society" under "Auteur"; you should
    then see a list, among the things listed the "Philosophical transactions".
    You can then choose 1797 and there it is.
    There are more things of interest to the history of navigation (and
    astronomy) on this site - among them 2 french editions of Pedro de Medina
    and 3 editions of Jean Alfonce, probably the first french navigation
    manual - based mostly on portuguese material.
    Best regards,
    Wolfgang K�berer

    Betreff: [NavList 2062] Re: making your own almanac
    I am slowly translating de Mendoza y Rios' 1797 presentation to the
    Royal Society on lunars and it has been helpful.  I found a web site
    which linked to another site which gave a complete (100 pages or so)
    scanned image of the presentation as reported in the Philosophical
    Transactions.  Fortunately I printed out a paper copy of the entire
    presentation [although I could only get it one page at a time], because
    I can not remember where I found this site and have been uable to
    locate it again using Google, etc.
