American Philosophical Society
Planetary, Lunar and Solar Positions, 601 B.C. to A.D. 1, at Five-Day and Ten Day Intervals (Memoir 56)
The need for these tables became pressing when hundreds of astronomical cuneiform tables in the British Museum became available for study, partly through the copies made in the 1880s & 1890s. All these texts originally came from some archive in Babylon which was discovered by Arabs in the middle of the 19th century. Most of the texts were written from about 330 B.C. to the first century A.D. Many of the texts are fragments of the original clay tables which have broken. In many cases, a fragment contains only parts of a few legible lines. Much of the information is of an astronomical character. It is evident that for investigations of these tablets the possibility of rapid scanning of accurately dated planetary positions is of primary importance. It was with this in view that these tables were developed by Dr. B., Tuckerman in consultation with Prof. A. Sach, Dr. H.H. Goldstine, & O. Neugebauer.
