Jean A De Luc
Gazette Nationale, Philosophical Magazine
Outlines De Luc's refutation of the claim that a better understanding of the age of the Earth will result from the recent discovery of Egyptian zodiacs. States that accounts of the Zodiac's discovery published in the Gazette Nationale state that 'it is "certain" [...] that the present division of the zodiac, such as we are acquainted with, was established among the Egyptians 15,000 years before the Christian æra' (664).
