A view of the earth: being a short but comprehensive system of modern geography. [Ressource électronique] : Exhibiting, I. A description of the figure, size, motion, &c. of the earth; with the uses and height of the atmosphere, or air surrounding it. II. Such geographical definitions, schemes, and descriptions, as form a necessary introduction to this branch of learning. III. The situation and extent of the several kingdoms, and nations in each quarter; their chief city; with the distance, direction, and difference of time from London. IV. An account of the several islands, trade, commodities, religions, number of inhabitants, principal mountains, and rivers in the world; also some observations on the less known parts, the trade winds, and monsoons. V. The explanation and use of a new set of maps, annexed to the several quarters, drawn according to the most approved modern projections, and regulated by observations. VI. A description of commodore anson's voyage round the world; shewing the several islands and countries he touched at; and the places where he took any prize, particularly the rich Manilla Ship. VII. A new and curious geographical clock, which points out the difference of time, with the hour, in the different nations upon earth, at one view. To which is added, a description of the terrestrial globe: with its application to a great variety of useful problems. Concluding with some curious ph(c)Œnomena exhibited upon the globe in a darkened room; and a few select paradoxes, intended to excite the attention of the learner. The whole laid down in a manner so easy and natural, as to be understood in a few days. Addressed to the young gentlemen and ladies of Great Britain and Ireland. By the Reverend Mr. Turner, late of Magdalen-Hall, Oxford; now rector of Comberton, vicar of Elmly, and teacher of the mathematics and philosophy, at Worcester; author of a view of the heavens, or an introduction to modern astronomy; plain trignometry rendered easy and familiar, by calculations in arithmetic only; and the chronologer perpetual

The young geometrician's companion [Ressource électronique] : being a new and comprehensive course of practical geometry; Containing, I. An easy Introduction to Decimal Arithmetic, with the Extractions of the Square, Cube, Biquadrate, and other Roots. II. Such Definitions, Axioms, Problems, Theorems, and Characters, as necessarily lead to the Knowledge of this Science. III. Planometry, or the Mensuration of Superficies; as Squares, Parallelograms, Triangles, Circles, Segments, &c. IV. Stereometry, or the Mensuration of Solids; as Cubes, Parallelopipedons, Prisms, Cones, Pyramids, Cylinders, Spheres, Frustums, &c. V. The Sections of a Cone; as Ellipses, Parabolas, Hyperbolas, Spheroids, Conoids, Spindles, &c. VI. The Platonic Bodies; as Tetraedrons, Hexaëdrons, Octaëdrons, Dodecaëdrons, and Icosaëdrons. To Which is Added A Collection of curious and interesting Problems, shewing that Lines and Angles, (and consequently the least Particle of Matter) may be divided in infinitum; that Superficies and Solids may be so cut as to appear considerably augmented; and, that the famous Problem of Archimedes, of moving the Earth, is capable of an easy and accurate Demonstration. Calculated for the Use of Schools and Academies. And is necessary to be gone through by the Scholar before he proceeds to the higher and more abstruse Branches of the Mathematics, Indivisibles, Infinites, Algebra, and Fluxions. By the Reverend R. Turner, LL. D.
