Excerpt from General AstronomyIn this work the Author has endeavoured to cover as wide a field as possible and it has necessarily been somewhat difficult to decide upon what to include and what to omit, especially when dealing with the most recent developments. It is hoped, however, that 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. Where possible mathematical methods of reasoning have been followed, which it is hoped will prove of value to students of elementary mathematical astronomy in clothing the symbols with more descriptive matter than is given in the text-books on Mathematical Astronomy.Considerable trouble has been taken to procure a representative series of Astronomical photographs, and these have been obtained from various sources which are indicated on the plates. The Author desires to express his thanks for permission to reproduce these photographs, and great pains have been taken to ensure accurate reproductions.The Author is greatly indebted to his friends, Mr. D. J. R. Edney and Mr. J. Jackson, both of the Royal Observatory, Greenwich; to the former for help in the preparation of many of the line diagrams, and to the latter for reading through the proofs in his absence at Christmas Island while in charge of the Expedition to observe the total Eclipse of September 21, 1922.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
