Textbook on Practical Astronomy
by George Leonard Hosmer
Publisher: Wiley 1910
Number of pages: 252
The purpose of this volume is to furnish a text in Practical Astronomy especially adapted to the needs of civil-engineering students who can devote but little time to the subject, and who are not likely to take up advanced study of Astronomy. The text deals chiefly with the class of observations which can be made with surveying instruments, the methods applicable to astronomical and geodetic instruments being treated but briefly.

The book fills the gap between the many excellent popular and non-mathematical works on Astronomy, and the standard treatises on the subject, which involve high mathematics. The rudimentary knowledge of Geometry, Algebra, and Trigonometry is assumed.
