A Weather Table

Description

This weather table, c. 1825, is designed to provide the readers with a guide to the weather in Britain for every week throughout the year. It is marketed to be 'very amusing and useful to all persons' but especially gardeners, travelers and farmers. The printer informs the purchaser that the table was tested for a year and a half before publication but wryly reminds the reader that 'in all good things we find some defects'.
