An Essay on comets
in two parts
by Andrew Oliver, Jun
Written in English.
"Part I. Containing an attempt to explain the phenomena of the tails of comets, and to account for their perpetual opposition to the sun, upon philosophical principles. Part II. Pointing out some important ends for which these tails were probably designed: wherein it is shewn, that, in consequence of these curious appendages, comets may be inhabited worlds, and even comfortable habitations; notwithstanding the vast excentricites of their orbits. The whole interspersed with observations and reflections on the sun and primary planets."
