Originally published in 1915, 'Pleasures of the Telescope - An Illustrated Guide' contains a complete series of star maps, drawn specially for the use of the amateur - showing all the stars visible to the naked eye, as well as some stars that can only be seen with optical aid. The latter have been placed in the maps as guide posts, to assist those who searching for the often faint and inconspicious stars, mentioned in the accompanying text. Many old works such as this are increasingly hard-to-come-by and expensive, and it is with this in mind that this book is being republished now in an affordable, modern edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on the subject.

About the Author:

Henry van Dyke was an American religious writer, lecturer, and clergyman. Educated at the Theological Seminary at Princeton University, van Dyke returned to the school after his graduation as a Professor of English Literature and became an elected member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters. In 1913 he was appointed by President Woodrow Wilson, his former classmate, as the ambassador to the Netherlands and Luxembourg, a job that he maintained throughout the First World War. His most famous short stories include "The Story of the Other Wise Man" and "The First Christmas Tree," which, like many of his other works, centered around moral and religious themes. After a lifetime of public service and religious leadership, Henry van Dyke died in 1933 at the age of 80.
