Excerpt from A Cycle of Celestial Objects, Vol. 1: For the Use of Naval, Military, and Private Astronomers; Prolegomena

Independently, however, of its mechanical uses, the depart ment of Urania is entitled to the strict regard of the educated classes, as furnishing the most exquisite proof of what the human intellect is capable. By it the mind is elevated to the consideration of orbs and objects which are undeniably the most conspicuous, the most beautiful, and the most important that can engage its powers: and while improving the understanding, it captivates the imagination. In a word, to astronomy are unveiled spaces and magnitudes of infinite extent, motions and forms of incomprehensible grandeur, and order and harmony of unspeakable sublimity. The philosopher, baffled with speculation on viewing the endless variety of divine effects, applies with awe and wonder to the investigation of what is reducible to certainty, in order the better to estimate the astonishing appropriateness of each of the myriads of parts which constitute the stupendous and inconceivable whole: and man is the more favoured by his beneficent Maker, in being permitted to attain and enjoy this gleam of heavenly glory.

Book Description Forgotten Books, 2016. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from A Cycle of Celestial Objects, Vol. 1: For the Use of Naval, Military, and Private Astronomers; Prolegomena Under this somewhat startling title, the reader is not about to be in icted with a detailed history of astronomy: it is only intended to place before him, a condensed introduction to the present conditions of the science, in fact - a reminder. It is in the heavens that the Sovereign Wisdom manifests order and harmony, regularity and proportion, greatness and majesty, arrangement and destination, in astounding immensity: and it is in the heavens that the amateur is to gather the practical results of his studies. Now, as the development of the wonderful mechanism there exhibited, apparently so battling to reason, is due to the genius and perseverance of both theoretical and practical astronomers, a rapid sketch of their services, with the most correct ascertainable dates, may be a proper prelude to the matters and opinions hereinafter delivered.
