The Science of Astronomy is sublime and beautiful. It gives us wings, and bears us through Infinitude. In these ethereal regions all is pure, luminous, and splendid. Dreams of the Ideal, even of the Inaccessible, weave their subtle spells upon us.
by Henry William Elson - Sturgis & Walton
In the first part the author gives the main astronomical facts according to the latest discoveries , but makes no pretense of entering into higher mathematical Astronomy. The second part of the book treats the Constellations.
by Thomas Dick - Seeley, Burnside, and Seeley
