Cardanus Rider, a pseudonym for astrologer Richard Saunders, began publishing his calendar records, weather patterns, and astronomical data. A compendium of month by month data providing planting, weather predictions and health information: the health advice for November -- "The best Physick this Month, is good Exercise, warm Clothes, and wholesome diet: But if any Distemper afflick you, finish your Physick this month, and so rest 'till March." Remaining information presents eclipses, List of Kings, History up to the Treaty of Aix-La-Chapelle (1748), Fixed Fairs in England and Wales & Moveable Feasts, miles between cities.
