Description:
The present work is not a compendium of astronomy or an outline course of popular reading in that science. It has been prepared as a text-book, and the author has endeavored to concentrate attention upon those parts of the subject that possess special educational value. From this point of view matter which permits of experimental treatment with simple apparatus is of peculiar value and is given a prominence in the text beyond its just due in a well-balanced exposition of the elements of astronomy.
