Placed at a critical phase during the closing stages of the Little Ice Age, the 1780s contain a number of outstanding temperature and rainfall extremes, both positive and negative which represent pronounced regional anomalies in the general circulation. The daily weather maps for Europe for the period January 1781-December 1785 are reproduced in the book. They are the earliest such charts to be constructed based on quantitative instrumental data. The instruments used for making measurements at this time are examined, and the sources of data identified. Finally the weather types and circulation patterns of the 1780s are discussed. -G.M.Sheail
