About this Item

A New Edition. Many wood engravings of astronomical views, instruments, diagrams and teachers illustrating points about astronomy. Costumes suggest 1820'sÐ1830's. Pages 118 pp.16mo. Blue patterned paper covered boards with brown decorated paper label on front cover. A New Edition. NUC: NP0376964 (for First Edition) A course in astronomy for children, presented in a form resembling a catechism, a literary form in which Pinnock (1782Ð1843) was experienced. Remarkably lucid and accurate, given its early date. Could well be studied today by children to their benefit. The first edition was published in London by W. Sell in 1831 and there is but one copy recorded (at Harvard). Pinnock published many catechisms on an enormous volume of subjects, including: mathematiucs, history (America, Europe, etc.), the Bible, conchology, geography, Hebrew, heraldry, ichthyology, etc. His catechism of astronomy was translated into Oordoo (Urdu) in 1832. Covers mildly soiled. Small chips at ends of spine and edge of front label. Mildly shaken. Minimal foxing. Overall, Very Good. Bookseller Inventory # 9163
