Scope and Contents

A notebook containing details regarding the erection of the 13" astrographic equatorial, which was built by Sir H. Grubb and erected at Greenwich in 1890.

A note inserted in the book around 1983 seems to indicate that the first part of the volume relates to 1889, and the additions at the back concern the May 1919 total eclipse expedition at Sobral.
