9781330267615: Elements of Astronomy: Accompanied With Numerous Illustrations, a Colored Representation of the Solar, Stellar, and Nebular Spectra, and Celestial ... and the Southern Hemisphere (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Elements of Astronomy: Accompanied With Numerous Illustrations, a Colored Representation of the Solar, Stellar, and Nebular Spectra, and Celestial Charts of the Northern and the Southern Hemisphere

These "Elementary Lessons in Astronomy" are intended, in the main, to serve as a text-book for use in Schools, but I believe they will be found useful to "children of a larger growth," who wish to make themselves acquainted with the basis and teachings of one of the most fascinating of the Sciences.

The arrangement adopted is new; but it is the result of much thought. I have been especially anxious in the descriptive portion to show the Sun's real place in the Cosmos, and to separate the real from the apparent movements. I have therefore begun with the Stars, and have dealt with the apparent movements in a separate chapter.

It maybe urged that this treatment is objectionable, as it reduces the mental gymnastic to a minimum; it is right, therefore, that I should state that my aim throughout the book has been to give a connected view of the whole subject rather than to discuss any particular parts of it; and to supply facts, and ideas founded on the facts, to serve as a basis for subsequent study and discussion. A companion volume to the present one - I allude to the altogether admirable "Popular Astronomy" from the pen of the Astronomer Royal -may, from this point of view, be looked upon as a sequel to two or three chanters in this book.
