This is a must have edition for anyone interested in how Constellation and bright star names came about. It's definitely one of my favorite history books covering the night sky. And it's free! Yes this is an 1899 edition but don't let that bother you, for the subject matter, you really want an "old book" to relate the history. This edition was followed by a "newer" edition called "Star Names their Lore and Meaning" I am really surprised to see it o Google books as I had not located it for e-reading on Amazon. What a treasure of a book to find!
