Strana 252 - As with my hat upon my head I walk'd along the Strand, I there did meet another man With his hat in his hand.
Strana 239 - On the Means of discovering the Distance, Magnitude, etc., of the fixed Stars, in consequence of the Diminution of the Velocity of their Light...

Strana 264 - No music warbles through the grove, No vivid colours paint the plain ; No more with devious steps I rove Through verdant paths now sought in vain.
