Found in 6 Collections and/or Records:
Calculations concerned mainly with the Moon and Jupiter's satellites, compiled from data of 1688-1694 and 1698, with an index (45v-46r); tide-tables for 1696-1699 and 1703-1705 (76r-87r, 99v-108r); stellar data (114r-119r); and a note by Flamsteed about William Gascoigne, William Crabtree and Jeremiah Horrocks (112v). The volume is marked '82' and 'S 1690'.
Lunar tables, with calculations from lunar data of 1694-1695 and notes on Jeremiah Horrocks's lunar theory. There are also tables of right ascensions and polar distances for inscribing lines of latitude and longitude on charts of the constellations. The tables are not in Flamsteed's hand, but possibly that of James Hodgson. The contents date from 1701-1708, with the exception of the notes, which are later.
Copies of works by Jeremiah Horrocks and other treatises, 601 folios (foliated continuously).
