About this Item

7 pp. Large 4to. A preliminary report of an extended study of the solar eclipse of April 16, 1893 by the distinguished solar astronomer, Sir Joseph Norman Lockyer (1836Ð1920) a Fellow of the Royal Society. Lockyer was particularly interested in spectroscopy of solar bodies, discovered and named the element helium, noted craters on the moon and on Mars, founded the important British journal, ÒNatureÓ, and was the first to appreciate that Stonehenge was an astronomical observatory. This report, using a new prism permitting greater resolution of the solar spectrum, by which the elemental composition of the corona and flares could be studied is a very important study, amplifying our knowledge of the sunÕs composition and behavior. Separation of front cover. Edges of covers chipped and showing short closed tears. Else, Very Good. Bookseller Inventory # 10660
