Ephemerides Exactissimae Caelestium Motuum ad Longitudinem Almae Urbis - 1677

Andrea Argoli was an Italian astronomer, and an avid astrologer (astronomers during this time period were usually also practicing astrology). In 1627 he got into trouble with Pope Urban VIII for casting horoscopes that did not please the Pope and had to leave Rome for Padua. In this volume he calculated the positions of the planets using the Tychonic model of the solar system.
