Appended is a list of the rare and antiquarian books accumulated during the first century, or so, of the existence of the Armagh Observatory up to and including the year 1883. Many volumes bear the signature or shield of Revd. Dr. T. R. Robinson, the third Director of the Observatory, others the seal of the Observatory on the title page or inside front cover. Among the collection are two volumes by Julius Firmicus Maternus and others from the early printing era, dated 1499 in the colophon. There are four seventeenth-century tomes by Kepler, Hevel, Galilei, and Lubienietz, respectively, and three other volumes containing substantial portions of seventeenth-century writings. Considering multi-volume works as single items, there are forty-three eighteenth-century works. The nineteenth century is represented by one hundred and sixteen works.

An explanation of the table is given below.

Col. I Volume reference number.
Col. 2 Author's name. Occasionally the tome is an English translation, and in that case only the original author's name appears.
Col. 3 Brief title of work; also volume and edition are given whenever indicated, followed by place of publication.
Col. 4 Number of pages in volume, pi. indicates plates, and chps. means chapters.
Col. 5 Date of publication.
Col. 6 Remarks on the condition of the volume covers, spine and pages, respectively, separated by semi-colons. The code used ranges from extremely poor (EP), through fair (F), good (G), to extremely good (EG). In the case of the covers and spine, EP indicates that large portions of the material are missing, and the remainder is badly scuffed or torn. VP indicates that small portions are missing and the rest is badly scuffed. While P means that the binding material is scuffed, but no parts are missing. F indicates a moderate degree of scuffing. G and VG are indicative of being only a little worn. EG means that the tome is intact and very little worn.

For the pages, EP means that some are very discoloured, torn and/or missing. VP indicates that some are very discoloured, and P that some are slightly discoloured, but the pages are intact. F means that some pages are a little discoloured and are perhaps untrimmed. G is indicative of very little discolouration on trimmed pages. For untainted, intact and trimmed pages, we have used the designations VG or EG.

Other abbreviations employed in the Remarks column are: -

a.d. almost detached from main body of book,
d. detached from main body of book,
disc. discoloured,
f. front cover,
f.d. front cover is detached.
f.a.d. front cover is almost detached,
fd. faded,
f.m. front cover is missing,
m. missing,
r. rear cover,
r.d. rear cover detached,
r.m. rear cover missing,
sl. slightly,
unt. untrimmed.

As an example, we give below an explanation of one of the entries in the Remarks column. VP, f.d., r.a.d.; VP, fd.; P, unt. The covers are very poor, i.e. small portions of the material are missing and the rest is badly scuffed. The front cover is detached, and the rear cover is almost detached from the main body of the volume. The spine is in a very poor state, well worn and with small pieces missing, and it has faded considerably. The pages are in a poor condition, some being slightly discoloured but otherwise intact. They are, however, untrimmed.

It is a pleasure to thank Mr. A. R. Macdonald, Librarian of the Royal Observatory, Edinburgh, for making many suggestions on an early draft of this listing.
