The Compendious Astronomer

The Compendious Astronomer

Containing New and Correct Tables for Computing in A Concise Manner, the Places of the Luminaries; Digested From Numbers Founded on The Latest Observations; All the Tables Hitherto Published Making the Apogé of the Sun About Seven Minutes Too Far. The Tables of the Moon Are Disposed According to Sir Isaac Newton's Theory, From Whence Each Equation May Be Taken Out With the Same Ease as That of the Sun's Centre, and Consequently Her Place Be Obtain'd in A Tenth Part of the Time of Any Other Method Extant; With Remarks Whereby the Said Theory Is Made to Correspond With Observations. The Young Arithmetician's and Historian's Perpetual and Universal Pocket-Chronologer, Curiously Engraven on A Copper-Plate, by Which and A Very Easy Arithmetical Calculus, May Be Determined, on the Aforesaid Principles, the Place of Each Luminary to the Like Exactness, as by the Tables, With the Solutions of Various Problems Both Useful and Necessary in Chronology, &c. To Render This Treatise Independant of Any Other, There Is Likewise Introduced, the Theory of Decimal Arithmetic, Both Terminate and Circulate; Together With Their Demonstrations, Which by the Late Ingenious Mr. Cunn, and Other Authors, Are Omitted. By Charles Brent
