by George C. Comstock - D. Appleton and company
The author concentrates attention upon those parts of the subject that possess special educational value. Matter which permits of experimental treatment with simple apparatus is of peculiar value and is given a prominence in the text.
by George F. Chambers - Oxford At The Clarendon Press
The work covers: the planets of our solar system; eclipses; gravity and tides; phenomena including aberration and refraction; comets; chronological astronomy; stars; astronomical instruments; the history of astronomy; and meteoric astronomy.
by Harold Spencer Jones - Edward Arnold and Company
The book will serve to give the reader a sufficiently complete view of the present state of Astronomy. Mathematics has been almost entirely excluded in order that the volume may appeal to the amateur, no less than the student.
This book introduces the advanced secondary or beginning university student to the process that revealed the rich tapestry of the universe to humanity, presenting astronomy not only as a field of knowledge, but also as a human endeavor in science.
