To do listEdit

  • Footnote 3 contains one unreadable greek work, marked [?], and one that I am unsure about: λογία. --mikeu talk 22:48, 11 March 2011 (UTC)
  • Most special characters (Æ, æ, œ, etc.) are in this text but not {{long s}} nor the bar over the 'N' in "DNI" --mikeu talk 22:48, 11 March 2011 (UTC)
  • The second title page contains a rebus at "Michaell [Sparke]" and another is the "*" in the first title page. --mikeu talk 23:02, 11 March 2011 (UTC)


This text appears to be a translation of some small sections from Astronomiæ instavratæ progymnasmata [1] published by Tycho Brahe's heirs shortly after his death.
