This website surveys the entire extent of the universe touching upon phenomenon from the largest to the smallest size and covering the entire cosmic interval. It presents observations as well as the theories which explains the phenomena.
by Charles J. White - J. Wiley
I present the main principles of Astronomy in a form adapted to the elementary course of instruction which is commonly given at colleges and the higher grades of academies. I selected those topics which seemed to me to be the most important.
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.
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.
