By Donald H. Menzel and Jay M.
Houghton Mifflin, Boston. Fully twenty years have elapsed since the late Donald II.
This hook was reprinted several times, latterly in However, over the years it has become more and more dated. Jay M. In recent years he has acquired an enviable reputation as a writer of high quality hooks on astronomy for the non-specialist and general reader.
The current edition, like its predecessor, is a delightful little hook, packed with all Endesvour, New Series. Printed 8, No. It is profusely illustrated. These are supplemented by helpful suggcstions on what to observe with the aid of binoculars or a small telescope.
Solar system astronomy is, however, by no means neglected. In particular there is a useful photographic atlas of the Moon and a series of planet-finder diagrams covering each year from the present down to This is a book to stimulate the armchair astronomer to engage in some practical stargazing.
Stephenson Glimpsing an Invisible Universe. By Richard E. Cambridge University Press, This is an unusual, well written. My sense of the unusual may stem from a personal involvement in the events described. The book gives a fascinating account of the subject and describes for the non-specialist the founding and early dcvclopment of what is now one of the most important branches of astronomy.
It is also a significant social document in that it chartsr the emergence of a major branch of astronomy in human as well as in technical terms.
It is perhaps somewhat diminished by its concentration of US activities. It is also a pity that a book published in lY83 was unable to follow the subject through the s to the state of glorious maturity that now exists; a maturity that incidentally owes a substantial debt to the efforts of the UK groups who flew instruments on the Copernicus and Ariel V satellites.
