Caption: Comet observations, by the British clergyman and astronomer Thomas William Webb (1807-1885). Several comets are described here, along with dates for the observations: the comet of 1862 (drawings, upper left); Encke's Comet of 1871 (text at upper right); the Great Comet of 1881 (text and drawing, centre right), and the Great Comet of 1882 (text and picture, at bottom). The latter text refers to Hardwick vicarage and Webb's wife Henrietta Montague Webb (HMW).
