    Shows an elderly lecturer standing in front of his 'mischievous nephews', and behind some of the instruments and diagrams with which he seeks to instruct his audience in 'Astronomy and the Movements of Celestial Bodies'. With his back turned to the display, he fails to see that his nephews have drawn amusing arms and faces on the diagram explaining terrestrial seasons, and on the model of the sun at the centre of the lecturer's orrery.
