A prognostication for the year 1699, after a new fashion : Wherein the reader will see (if he be not blind) many things as wisely observed, as by other star-gazers. Being the third after bissextile or leap year. Calculated for the meridian of Scotland, and may serve, without sensible error, for any other country besided, where they understand the English tongue. / By Merry Andrew a well-wisher to the mathematicks.
