It has been assumed that the reader has an interest in the wonderful universe which surrounds him, and that he has arrived at such a stage of intellectual development that he demands the reasons for whatever conclusions he is asked to accept.
by Cecil Goodrich Julius Dolmage - Seeley and co.
The book gives an account of the science of Astronomy, as it was known in 1910, in a manner acceptable to the general reader. The author takes the theories of Astronomy out of those mathematical forms, and presents them in the ordinary language.
