Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Alexander Aubert FRS, (1730 - 1805), was an eminent English amateur astronomer and businessman. He was born at Austin Friars, London, 11 May 1730. The appearance of the Great Comet of 1744 gave him, then a schoolboy at Geneva, a permanent bias towards astronomy; he diligently prepared, however, for a mercantile career in counting-houses at Geneva, Leghorn, and Genoa, and visited Rome in the jubilee year (1750). Returning to London in 1751, he was in the following year taken into partnership by his father.show more
