KIRKUS REVIEW

This is a history of the implements of astronomy, how each came into being, how developed, and the various steps in the making and manufacturing the parts of lenses, telescopes, mirrors, mountings, and so forth. He then goes into the various aspects of the history and personalities, the contributions made by various observatories and institutions, and gives a rounded picture of astronomical development and growth at its main points of concentration.
