Summary expansion
The ephemerides are astronomical and astrological calculations and predictions in the form of tables, which give for stated times the apparent position and other numerical particulars relating to heavenly bodies. Also included is information on eclipses and other matters of use to the astronomer and navigator. The first part contains brief treatises of an astrological nature, including the best times for blood-letting and for taking medicine
