Second, Treats of Making Divers Sorts of Globes, both as to the Geometrical and Mechanical Work . . . To which is Added an Appendix, Wherein the Present State of Geography is Consider'd. London: T. Horne et alia. || Pagination is complex: an unpaginated first signature of 32 pages includes a dedication (to the polymath Samuel Molyneux), preface, and advertisement; two separate signatures are both paginated as 113-44, so that citations to the second signature so-numbered are prefixed by “(2).” Bibliographic descriptions, which generally list “pp.[32], 216,” should identify “pp.[32], 144, [32], 72”; this strange pagination also led the binders to place figures intended for the section on globes incorrectly in the appendix.
