Subject: Nature

The state of the weather is almost the first topic of conversation when people meet, which is not surprising when it is a matter of such importance to our wellbeing, health, prosperity, and even to life itself. Accurate weather predictions have always been an important human ambition and one that for some could ensure their success or failure. The result has been the framing of a rough set of rules about the weather. Some of these observations have become proverbs; others have taken the shape of rhymes; while many have been passed down by word of mouth, as mere records of facts. First published in 1893, this charming, beautifully illustrated collection of sayings, proverbs and rhymes that have helped predict the weather around the world since ancient times is still both fascinating and useful today.
