About this book

John Kington's book, the first of its kind, gives a definitive account of the weather in the 1780s over Europe based on historical weather maps. These charts are unique in forming the earliest series of daily synoptic weather maps constructed with quantitative instrumental data, and as such represent an important contribution to the history of climate.

A bicentenary exercise; 5. Daily synoptic weather maps, 1781-5; 6. Weather types and circulation patterns of the 1780s; Bibliography; Index.
