The Story of Eclipses
by George F. Chambers
Publisher: S. S. McClure Co. 1909
Number of pages: 208
The immediate aim of this book was the unambitious one of presenting in a readable, yet soundly scientific, language a popular account of eclipses of the Sun and Moon, and very briefly of certain kindred astronomical phenomena which depend upon causes in some degree similar to those which operate in connection with eclipses.
