This Scheme is the Face of the Moon as it appears through a Teles= - cope atthe Full, and as described by Hevelius; the Dark Parts are the Jea; the Bright Parts Land, and the long white streaks, the Illuminated top of Ridges of High Mountains.

The Spots here Described are for the main the same that are continually expos'd to our sight, on account of the exact adjustment of the Moons. Diurnal and Menftrual Revolutions, whereby almost the very sames Face is continually turned towards our Earth.

Isay nothing of the Librations discoverd in its Motions by Hevelius, which make the Parts sometimes hidden to appear to us and thereby afford its Bordering Inhabitants (if such therebe) the glori ous view of our Earth, which the more remote Ones can never en= joy without Traveling a great way forso uncomon a Prospect.

That the Moon has an atmosphere about it we have lately difcovered; but that atmosphere being very thin and only visible in Total Eclipfes of the Sun, it was not necesary to reprefent it here. Senex foulp!
