The Description of a plain Instrument, that with much ease and exactness will discover the situation of any vertical plane howsoever inclining, reclining, or declining; and how to draw a Dyal upon any such plane, or upon the face of any vertical body how irregular soever, together with several other things requisite to the Art of Dyalling.
The use of the aforesaid Instrument.
1. To draw an horizontal line,
2. To draw a perpendicular line
3. To draw a meridian line.
4. To find the Suns Azimuth.
5. To find the Suns altitude or Almicantar.
6. To find the unknown latitude of a place, the hour being given.
7. To find the inclination or reclination of a plane.
8, To find the declination of a Plane.
A caution.
9. To draw a true Dial speedily, without skill in the Mathematicks, upon any erect plain, or irregular face of a body, being situate more Southerly, than the East or West points, viz. when the Index shewes the declination.
Here once for all note these 3 things
10. To draw a true Dyal speedily upon any erect plane situated more Northerly than the East or West point, viz. when the Counter-Index shews the declination.
11. To draw a Meridian Dyal upon an East or West plane.
But here also it is good to note diverse things.
12. To draw an Horizontal Dyal upon its own plane.
