COPY of an ASTRONOMER / MATHEMATICIAN, perhaps a professor or student. There are 11 LENGTHY HANDWRITTEN MATHEMATICAL NOTES tipped in to 7 printed pages that refer to the subject matter on those pages. There are also relevant margin notes, in French, equations and marks here and there. All the tipped in paper and margin notes are on the first 37 pages of the Tisserand / Perchot work. GOOD CONDITION: The finely bound covers are very good, with some scrapes to the leather and paper covered boards, overall quite lovely. Internally, the pages are lightly toned; there is some foxing throughout, heavy on the last few pages; there are relevant handwritten margin notes and marks, and some tipped in pages of handwritten notes, as stated above; there are corner creases to the latter pages and some signs of handling here and there; overall a solid, nice copy.
