5.0 out of 5 stars Essential reference work for Victorian Astronomy, 6 Sep 2001
This review is from: The Victorian Amateur Astronomer: Independent Astronomical Research in Britain, 1820-1920 (Wiley PRAXIS Series in Astronomy & Astrophysics) (Hardcover)
An exhaustive and comprehensive description of amateur astronomy in Victorian times. Thoroughly well written and eminently readable. Beautifully illustrated throughout with many previously unpublished images. Allan Chapman's exhaustive research is self evident and the book is worth the price just for the plethora of references alone, which will be of tremendous value to any historian of science. A 'tour de force' by any standard!
