Mathematical and astronomical diagrams found in the Savile Room in 1889, Written in the 17th-18th century
Mathematical and astronomical diagrams found in the Savile Room in 1889, chiefly of a size large enough to illustrate Savilian lectures: among them is Wallis's curious plan of a self-supporting flat ceiling 58 feet square made of 60 rafters each only 16 feet long (fol. 111): with a few miscellaneous papers. See MS. Savile 100.
