Elementary Mathematical Astronomy
by C. Barlow, G. Bryan
Publisher: University Correspondence College Press 1893
Number of pages: 442
The present volume has been compiled with the view of filling the gap between the many excellent popular and non-mathematical works on Astronomy, and the standard treatises on the subject, which involve high mathematics. It has not been assumed that the reader's knowledge of mathematics extends beyond the more rudimentary portions of Geometry, Algebra, and Trigonometry.

This volume is designed especially for the use of the cadets of the U. S. Military Academy, as a supplement to the course in General Astronomy. It is therefore limited to that branch of Practical Astronomy which relates to Field Work.

For the first time in history, humans have reached the point where it is possible to construct a revolutionary space-based observatory that has the capability to find dozens of Earth-like worlds, and possibly some with signs of life.

This book is written for the many observers, who use telescopes for study or pleasure and desire more information about their properties. It attempts neither exhaustive technicalities nor popular descriptions of great observatories and their work.
