Dated but beatifully written.

This is a old classic now available for free on the Kindle.
It is beautifully and descriptively written using the full range of the English language. Much of the information has been superseded now but it is still a very enjoyable read of science in bygone days. I deal for a long journey !
On my download none of the star maps are visible even though there are links. However, the writing style, enthusiasm and general information takes you back to a time long gone - simply lovely to read.
