It is actually the same book as http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/1844037118?ref_=cm_cr_ryp_prd_ttl_sol_17 with more photos and in color.
It is not a book by Clarke, it is by Heather Couper.

With the popularity of amateur astronomy I am quite surised to be the first reviewer of this book. It is the book I have been looking for for years .The authors recount tales of astronomy from the ancients to modern day . It is well written and has a part travelogue feel to it . The scene moves from the Australian bush to Florence,Prague etc . I have always been a fan of Heather Cooper and enjoy Nigel Henbest too. Heather is in the Carl Sagan mould in my opinion and she seems to have been replaced on TV by the newer dramatic , sweeping camera astronomy shows .This is a shame ( does Sky at Night beckon in the future ?? I would hope so) . I would recommend this book as it is an informative and easy read .
