"Elements of Astronomy" by John H. Wilkins 1823

This is the 2nd edition of John Wilkins' very popular astronomy textbook that was published in 1823. The stereotype editions that were printed in the 1830s and 1840s are very common, but the earlier editions of the 1820s are harder to find. Wilkins' book is probably best known for its fine Solar System frontispiece.
