About this product
- DescriptionThe Concise Kwledge Astromy, published in 1898, was one of a series of popular reference books by experts. Agnes Clerke (1842-1907) was a successful author of books on astromy and its history (three of her other works being reissued in this series), and her co-authors were astrophysicist Alfred Fowler, an internationally rewned expert in spectroscopy, and J. Elland Gore, a Fellow of the Royal Astromical Society and expert on variable stars. Illustrated by over 100 photographs and drawings, the book aims to provide the educated n-specialist reader with an understanding of current astromical kwledge. The application of new techlogies, such as photography and spectroscopy, to astromy in the nineteenth century had led to many new discoveries, and public interest in the subject had greatly increased. The book is divided into four parts - the history of astromy, astromical movements and instruments, the solar system, and sidereal astromy.
