This striking and informative chart illustrates how the position of Earth in relation to the sun causes the change of the seasons. It is surrounded by four smaller figures showing the diurnal motion of Earth, the planet's annual movement, a parallel sphere, and a right sphere. Descriptive French text appears below the diagrams. Composed and designed by H. Nicollet with text and supplemental figures by E. Soulier.
Attractive original color with light toning confined to the blank margins.
