7 Beebe, Stuart The Time and Lunar Register, Referring to the Year, Month, Days of the Month and Week, from the Advent of our Saviour, to the Close of the Nineteenth Century. The Lunar part presents a table of the new and full moons. Interspersed with historical notices.
Hartford Russel Canfield for the Author 1827 Hardcover Good 8vo. 
Title continues: The whole calculated for general use and convenience, both on land and sea. 55, [4] pages, however the pagination is a mess. Leaves marked as page 29, 30, 41, 42 appear twice - each with different content. The leaves marked twice as pages 48, 49, 50, 51 are identical. No pages are numbered 33, 34, 45, 46. In spite of this ironic embarassment, the volume appears to be complete and bound in order. Marbled paper over boards with leather spine and tips. Foxing and stains throughout. Binding sound. "Time Register" stamped in gilt to spine.
