1899. This volume of star names is not intended for the professional astronomer, but as a reference to fill a vacancy in popular astronomical literature. It contains a sketch of the lunar and solar zodiacs which are constantly alluded to in the treating of individual constellations; as well as a detailed list of the constellations, their history among the nations, cataloging and early treatment by authors and their connection with astrology, art, folklore, literature and religion.

User Review  - Manuel Vega - Goodreads

Tons of information about each constellation and star. Excellent data base, but hard to read due to a poor editing with too many fonts in some cases way too small to read comfortable. Read full review
