Six detailed and interesting folio sheets relating to cosmography. The first sheet includes diagrams of the solar system. stereographic and globular projections as well as a compass. The second sheet describes the principal elements of the solar system and includes a table of comet distances and their approaches to the sun. The third sheet depicts the magnitude of the sun in relation to Jupiter and Saturn. The fourth sheet depicts the principal fixed stars of the northern hemisphere whilst the fifth sheet covers the stars of the southern hemisphere. The last of these six impressive sheets depicts an analemma, showing the rising and setting of the sun across the globe. In all, a very interesting piece of cosmographical information by a teacher of mathematical sciences, Samuel Dunn. Some splitting at lower centrefolds repaired otherwise in good condition.
