Description

Excerpt from The British Almanac of the Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge, for the Year of Our Lord 1857: Being the First After Bissextile, or Leap Year Explanation of the column headed Thermometrical Register. Thermometrical Register commences with Nov. 1855, and closes with Oct. 1856, inclusive. These registers have been carefully copied from those made at the Royal Observatory, Greenwich, and which are also deposited with the Royal Society. They show the highest and lowest ranges within each twenty - four hours, from twelve different readings. Each month is placed with its corresponding month, as affording the most ready and advantageous means of comparison, although by this arrangement the register of the last two months of 1855 follows the ten months of 1856, which are all we can give up to the day of publication. Explanation of the columns headed Length of day, Day's increase or decrease, Day breaks, and Twilight ends.
