**Elementary Mathematical Astronomy**

by C. Barlow, G. Bryan

**Publisher**: University Correspondence College Press 1893**ISBN/ASIN**: B000SDGWRY**Number of pages**: 442

**Description**:

The present volume has been compiled with the view of filling the gap between the many excellent popular and non-mathematical works on Astronomy, and the standard treatises on the subject, which involve high mathematics. It has not been assumed that the reader's knowledge of mathematics extends beyond the more rudimentary portions of Geometry, Algebra, and Trigonometry.
