Madras Observatory Papers, 1827

Published on 12/08/2011 

We have just scanned onto DSpace the lovely plates from the Madras Observatory Papers of 1827.  The plates show, studies of astronomers working with a pendulum experiment at the observatory, a map of Madras, and topographic views and charts of where the equator crosses the coast of Sumatra.  The binding of the book is in poor condition and we hope to have it repaired soon.  The plates can be seen at DSpace
