THIS VOLUME contains the PHYSICAL PRINCIPLES
of ASTRONOMY, with their application to all the phænomena which arise from the mutual attraction of the bodies in our system. The author has endeavoured to render this difficult subject easy to be understood, by fully explaining all the principles, and omitting no material steps in the investigations; he trusts therefore that what he has here done may prove a considerable help to students in physical Astronomy, and tend to diffuse a more general knowledge of that subject. The Tables and Catalogues of the fixed Stars will be found very useful to the practical Astronomer.
