Caption: Elementa Eclipsium. Title page for Elementa Eclipsium, a Czech book on eclipses that was published in 1816. This book was written by Franz Ignaz Cassian Hallaschka (1780-1847) and contained the maps for predicted eclipses between 1816 and 1860. The geometric constructions used by Hallaschka anticipated the standard theory of eclipses developed later by Friedrich Wilhelm Bessel.
