Offprint from: Annales de l'Observatoire de Paris. Memoires; vol. 22, 1896. 66 pp., 15 photographic images (1 heliogravure and 14 collotypes) of the moon on 10 leaves of plates, each plate with printed overlay with principal features marked and named, caption title on first page. (no printed wrappers or separate title-leaf). ----
RARE FIRST AND ONLY EDITION. This is the offprint issue (the journal issue has a different pagination, C.1-C.64). In terms of richness of detail, the heliogravure (with deep plate impression) of the three-quarter moon on plate XV is one of the most amazing photographic reproduction produced up to that time. The offprint of Puiseux's paper is of exceptional rarity. We could not trace any copy at auction. OCLC/Worldcat lists only one location (Milan University). - Visit our website for additional images and information.
