A plan of eclipses over England in the 18th century

DUNN, Samuel.

A Map Exhibiting the Dark Shadow of the Moon over England and other parts of Europe, in the Five Great Solar Eclipes, Of the Years, 1715, 1724, 1737, 1748 and 1764.
London: Laurie & Whittle, 1794. Original outline colour. 315 x 310mm, with wide margins.

An unusual and separately published circular map, centred on London, showing the paths of total (1715, 1724) and partial (1737, 1748, 1764) solar eclipses that were visible from Europe. The extent of the map includes Ireland, England, Scotland, and parts of continental Europe including Germany and France. Each eclipse is labeled with its date and depicted as a shadowed path. The shadowed path design is visually impactful and a clear way to communicate how the moon passes in front of the sun.
