    This two-volume work by the clergyman and astronomer William Pearson () aimed, with brilliant success, to compile data from extant sources into one of the first English practical guides to astronomy. Most of the tables were updated and improved versions, and some were wholly reconstructed to streamline the calculation processes.

A Treatise on Spherical Astronomy Book Summary: Spherical or positional astronomy is used primarily to map objects on the celestial sphere. In this technical work, first published in and intended for advanced students, Sir Robert Stawell Ball () breaks down the field into distinct areas of study.INTRODUCTION Astronomy is defined as practical or positional astronomy are often used.

The fundamental concepts and basic principles of "spherical astronomy", which is the basis for geodetic astronomy, were developed principally by the Greeks, and were well established by the 2nd century A.D.This is the instructor’s draft of a book that will be available from the Wissink copy shop.
