Second edition, corrected and enlarged, [8], 242, [8], 40pp., additional engraved title in Latin with allegorical border, laid-down with two closed tears to fore-edge, title lightly stained with a couple of marginal chips, some general age-toning, engravings and woodcuts in the text including one full page, orig. calf, rebacked, joints rubbed, head of spine chipped. Joseph Moxon (1627 1691) established himself as a printer and globe and instrument maker in London. After visiting Amsterdam to study printing, Moxon brought back W. J. Blaeu's handbook of globes, then just published, and translated it into English as "A tutor to astronomy and geography" in 1659. The work was superseded when Moxon published a totally new handbook in 1659, "A tutor to astronomie and geographie". This work was specially designed for an English market rather than Dutch, and became Moxon's most popular work relating to globes. This second edition is corrected and greatly enlarged. A variant second edition which is not listed in Wing, it varies from Wing M3023 in having a separate pagination for the 40-page "Antiquity, Progress, and Augmentation of Astronomie."; ESTC finds 3 copies located at Cambridge, Wellcome and Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin.
