TitlePaper, 'Ismaelis Bullialdi observationes factae anno 1667 circa nebulosam in cingulo andromedae, et stellam mirabilem in collo ceti' [Observations of nebula in the constellation Andromeda and stars in the neck of the constellation Cetus seen in 1667] by Ismael Bulialdus
DescriptionBulialdus writes: 'In January 1667, when the cloudy and misty weather, which had continued for a good while, did permit us to observe, the star Nebulosa, in the girdle of Andromeda (which may well enough be seen by the naked eye) appeared much obscurer than the year before.'
