Merlinus anonymus. An Almanack, and no almanack. A kalendar, and no kalendar. An ephemeris (betwixt jest, and earnest) for this present year 1655. Being besse sextile or leap year. Containing many chronological concavities, monethly observations, Scoganicol annotations, and Tarltonical predictions of the state of great Brittain, and all Europe in general. Of the two ominous eclipses, this year visible in our horizon, the one by the interposition of the sun betwixt the moon and the earth, the other at the moons ingress into Libra. The mutual aspects of the twelve signs, as they are seated in Lillies Almanack, also a tide table, and some spagitical schemes, not to be found in Bullialdus or Durca. Also, a dogmatical diary, very useful for court, city, and country, which other crotchets of most copious contrivance: intended especially for the horizon of Saint James es [sic], Clerkenweel, where the pole is elevated from that of Grubstreet, 3947 cubits, and may indifferently (id est, so, so,) serve for all clymats, countries, and continents, and the most un-inhabitable parts of the earth. /
