Frontpiece is inscribed in ink "Jared Smalleys" Astrony, Bought Batavia, April 25, 1833.

VERY rare and VERY old pre-Victorian era book on Astronomy -- I have searched the internet and have NOT seen another of this date for sale.

Book is in GOOD antique condition - cloth cover, leather binding. Some wear to cover and back as expected for a book 180 years old. Spine is TIGHT - and the book is all there. Pages have yellowed with age and there is some foxing. 263 pages complete.

Please see my other antiquarian books at http://www.etsy.com/shop/victoriansentiments?section_id=7179696. I've got a great selection of Victorian jewelry too!
