Forlagets beskrivelse
Excerpt from A System of Geography, or a Dissertation on the Creation and Various Phenomena of the Terraqueous Globe: As It Consists of Subterraneous Caverns, Subterraneous Waters, Mountain, Vallies, Plains, and Rocks; With an Hypothesis Concerning Their Causes; A Description of All the Empires, Kingdoms, &C. Of the World

Veries, which, at firft Sight, appeared extremely difficult: And indeed, if our Ideas were purfued in the Way familiar to Students in Geometry, they would carry our Thoughts farther, and with greater Evidence and Clearnefs than we are apt to imagine. As to Aftronomy, I have not only explained the cc leftial Motions, but likewife the Reafons Of the fe veral Phenomena arifing therefrom, fo far as can be underftood and demonitrated by the Help of the Geometry in this Treatife,' avoiding thofe things (as Matters of too much Difficulty) which require a thorough Knowledge of the higher Geometry. Be {ides this, I have explained the Caufes Of the celefiial Motions; and demonfirated, that there is an imi verfal Power of Gravity acting in the folar Syfiem, whereby the primary Planets are drawn Off from their natural, rec'tilinear Motions, and kept in their Orbits. That this Power or Force does not tend to' wards the Earth, but the Sun; and that this Force, or Gravity, is the fame which caufes all heavy Bodies to tend to the Centre of the Earth: And, laptly, that: the Motion, which caufes the Succe¿ion of Day and Night, and the apparent Rifing and Setting of the Stars in the Space of Twenty-four Hours, belongs to the Earth, and not to the Heavens. Though the Edefi of this Power, or Virtue, is [o vifible, in de feending Bodies towards the Center Of the Earth; yet Nature fcarce affords any Problem, wherein the Caufe is more concealed It is by this {ingle Prin ciple, that the Earth, and all the celeftial Bodies, are kept from Diliolution, the leali of their Particles not.
