"Astronomie des Demoiselles" by James Ferguson 1827

This is a French translation of James Ferguson's "Young Gentleman and Lady's Astronomy" that was published in 1827 and was translated and augmented by M. Qu├ętrin. This French edition has some very nice hand colored plates and in particular it has a hand colored volvelle for the frontispiece. The volvelle demonstrates time and the rotation of the Earth. Plate 6 is missing from this volume.
