Somewhat autobiographical but a good summary of current solar physics in a very readable form.


Atlas Celeste: Uranographia Britannica
Atlas Celeste: Uranographia Britannica
by John Bevis
Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars Bevis's Uranographia, 15 Mar. 2016
I've been researching Bevis's atlas for over 19yrs since co-discovering a 1786 original Atlas Celeste in Manchester in 1997. Only 30 originals have been identified and sell for upwards of £20,000. Only three Uranographia ca 1750 are known to exist, the rest are Atlas Celeste, without the nomenclature, offered for sale anonymously in 1786. This facsimilie is based on the Uranographia owned by the American Philosophical Society. Its reproduction is OK but could have been better.

Gardening with Ferns
Gardening with Ferns
by Martin Rickard
Edition: Paperback
Price: £12.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Ferns In colour, 29 Jan. 2014

This review is from: Gardening with Ferns (Paperback)
Where Barbara Joe Hoshizaki's book on ferns lacks in the way of colour illustrations, Martin Rickard's book scores points. His knowledge of ferns and fern growing in the UK is especially useful. It still doesn't quite answer all my 'need to knows' as a new fern gardener, as the colour illustrations show only a limited selection are rather small. There seems to be hundreds of very similar fern varieties that I still find confusing...but I'm getting there.

This review is from: Fern Grower's Manual (Paperback)
I have loved ferns since first 'discovering' them in the wild some 40yrs ago but I could quite put my finger on why until a recent conversation with an astronomy friend; of course, they appeal to my interest in fractal geometry and the beautiful complexity of natural plant forms. But I still found them difficult; to me, individually they all looked alike! This book has helped me to appreciate the different forms that this fascinating phylum can take. I'm now beginning to appreciate ferns better and prompted by this book have started a modest collection of about two dozen varieties. The diagrams are excellent and have certainly assisted my understanding of ferns and how to grow them. My only criticism is that the illustrations are not in colour.

Having moved to Cheddleton in 2012 and with a great affection for the Staffordshire Moorlands (I'm still driving around grinning like a Cheshire cat), I wanted to learn more about the place. This little book has been a great read and an inspiration to discover more about local history.
