ASTRONOMY BY OBSERVATION

By ELIZA A. BOWEN.

[blocks in formation]

An elementary text-book for High-Schools and Academies, based on the most practical and interesting method of studying the subject—that of observation. To assist the pupil in his work, careful directions are given when, how, and where to find the heavenly bodies ; also for observing, in entertaining and instructive ways, the characteristics and phenomena of the constellations. Their motions are described in familiar language, in the order in which they can be seen by an observer. The large quarto pages admit maps and views on a scale that will give a clear conception of the vast expanse of the celestial regions.

LOCKYER'S

ELEMENTS OF ASTRONOMY.

Accompanied with numerous Illustrations, a Colored Repre

sentation of the Solar, Stellar, and Nebular Spectra, and Arago's Celestial Charts of the Northern and Southern Hemisphere. American edition, revised and enlarged, and specially adapted to the wants of American schools.

12mo. 312 pages. The author's aim throughout the book has been to give connected view of the whole subject rather than to discuss any particular parts of it, and to supply facts and ideas founded thereon, to serve as a basis for subsequent study.

The fine STAR-MAPS OF ARAGO, showing the boundaries of the constellations and the principal'stars they contain, are appended to the volume.
