Whiston (William & Senex John), A Scheme of the Solar System with the Orbit of the Planets and Comets belonging thereto, Described from Dr. Halley's accurate Table of Comets Philosoph, Transact. No. 297. Founded on Sr. Isaac Newton's wonderful discoveries By Wm. Whiston M.A., published Thomas Bowles Robert Sayer and John Bowles & Son, circa 1760, separately published uncoloured engraved chart and model of the solar system, engraved by John Senex, old folds, slight dust soiling, one marginal repired closed tear at base, 685 x 610 mm A scarce chart showing the orbits of all the known comets in the context of Newtonian astronomy, presumably first published in 1720 (as per the text in the upper left corner). The address's given of Bowles and Sayer would indicate a date of circa 1760. Earlier editions carry John Senex's address and the legend at the base of the chart shows 'scratching out' of the details of earlier publishers. (1)
