I bought this book and I did not know it was written in 1964. Even though it has been revised in 1984, the lay-out is not what you would expect from books nowadays. Nevertheless, the content is good. There are lots of photos shot from divers probes sent around the moon and the author guides your journey extensively on the moon day by day, describing craters, seas, swamps and moutain ranges. I find this book an ideal complement to the "Atlas of the Moon" by A. Ruckle which still remains the reference in terms of selenial cartography. You can go through the text of this book and follow up on maps from Ruckle's book or even beter with your telescope.

Engaging, well written text with good, clear maps and labelled photographs of the moon showing many features which can be cross referenced back during an observing session. About 600 features described with details about dimensions, location etc. Good for small telescopes and binoculars with a narrative of the features observable by lunar cycle day so a observing session can be tailored and more productive.
