About this Item

Unbound. 4to. (Article): 115-121 pp. 1 engraved plate showing the solar phenomena based on the drawings of Hugo Muler. (Whole issue): iv, 127 pp. Numerous articles, tables, 2 engraved plates including a sketch of the Nebula known as Messier no. 20; pages unbound and uncut, extremities slightly rubbed. Unbound printer's copy still unfolded and uncut, original printed wrappers present. Very good. EXTREMELY RARE. FIRST EDITION. This unbound printer's copy of the distinguished astronomical journal is very rare, and whilst containing all the printed matter and original wrappers, shows the process of the printer in creating the final copy. The pages are unfolded and uncut. De La Rue was a pioneer of cosmic photography, and played a vital role in the advancement of the fledgling science. It was he who invented the photoheliographic telescope, which first allowed astronomers to map the surface of the Sun photographically. This analysis of Solar phenomena contains a stunning engraved plate that is even accompanied by a note apologizing for failing to fully do justice to the beauty of the original illustrations. DSB IV.
