An attractive and unusual item, and extremely scarce: no copies recorded on either OCLC WorldCat or COPAC. Engraved print in shape 11 cm diameter circle, carrying text and numeration, attached to printed 8vo leaf and superimposed on matching circular print with months and further numeration, to make a calculation tool. At head of page, beneath title and above wheel: 'To find the SUNDAYS that depend on EASTER day. Put Easter day that is on the moveable circle to the day of the Month that Easter day falls on in the fixt circle and all the Sundays which depend on Easter day will stand against the several days of the month they fall on. To find the the [sic] SUNDAYS in ADVENT Put the first [.]'. The remaining six lines of the text beneath the circle, with 'J. Shury Sc.' in bottom right-hand corner, and the publisher's slug centred at foot. John Shury, engraver and printer of 16 Charterhouse Street, Charterhouse Square, is referred to in an 1821 letter from Richard Phillips to Michael Faraday as 'a civil but rather stupid dog'.
