A Manual of Field Astronomy

212 pages1 hour


First published in 1917, this early treatise on “field astronomy” constitutes a comprehensive and informative look at the subject and is thoroughly recommended for inclusion on the bookshelf of all astronomy enthusiasts or historians. It will be of special interest to those with an interest in the history and development of the field, which has undoubtedly gone through significant changes during the last hundred years. Not to be missed by collectors of vintage literature of this ilk. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new introduction on astronomy.
