Apollo Anglicanus : The English Apollo: : assisting all persons in the right understanding of this years revolution, as also of things past, present, and to come. With necessary tables plain and useful. A twofold kalendar, viz. Julian or English, Gregorian or foreign computations, more plain and full than any other, with the sun and moons risings, and settings daily observed, of general use for most men. Being the first after bissextile or leap-year. To which is added the good and bad days in each month: also certain brief aphorisms, and excellent astrological observations, concerning diseases and sick persons, with a rational discourse pertinent thereunto, a modest defence of the art it self, being the substance of what Sir Christopher Heydon long since has written, contracted into the tops of twelve pages, and lastly a curious secret from Miraldus to know the plenty and scarcity of corn in any year, which if well practiced may be of great use to farmers and such persons that are much concerned therein. / By Richard Saunders.
