About this Book Scan
Carefully reproduced in full colour from our original printing of the 1897 stated ninth edition.
We know little about Jabez Bunting Dimbleby, the author of this curious and detailed treatise on historical chronology with reference to astronomical cycles. He was peripheral to the astrological community, and yet this work makes explicit reference in its title to the use of the zodiac in establishing the chronology of past events.
Only the so-called eighth edition of 1894 and the present edition of 1897 are recorded in libraries, leaving the earlier edition count shrouded in mystery.
