I present the main principles of Astronomy in a form adapted to the elementary course of instruction which is commonly given at colleges and the higher grades of academies. I selected those topics which seemed to me to be the most important.

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.
