About this Item

Folio. pp. [36], 271, [1], 1-97, [1] but signatures [2]A-[2]N (numbered pp.1-52) of the Canon section which were meant to go at the end of the book are mis-bound between signatures N and O. Signatures [2]O etc. (pp. 53-97, [1]) of this section are bound in their proper place at the end. There are also printing errors in the pagination. The book, however, has been carefully collated and IS COMPLETE. Includes 1 fold out genealogical table and 1 fold out list of subscribers. Title is printed in red and black. Pages are generally clean with occasional scattered foxing. Re-backed preserving original calf boards – well rubbed; board corner tips and edges are restored; endpapers renewed with quality laid paper. The original owner’s book plate is remounted on the inside front cover. Cary’s "Palaeologia chronica" tries to determine the periods of time between the creation of the world and the destruction of Jerusalem by the Romans. The author discusses calendrical systems, solar and lunar cycles and astronomical observations in relation to ancient historical events and traditions. [ESTC R8154; Wing C743].
