Description: The present work is designed as a text-book of Astronomy suited to the schools of science, and is meant to supply that amount of information upon the subject which may fairly be expected of every "liberally educated" person. While it assumes the previous discipline and mental maturity usually corresponding to the latter years of the college course, it does not demand the peculiar mathematical training and aptitude necessary as the basis of a special course in the science - only the most elementary knowledge of Algebra, Geometry, and Trigonometry is required for its reading. Its aim is to give a clear, accurate, and justly proportioned presentation of astronomical facts, principles, and methods in such a form that they can be easily apprehended by the average college student with a reasonable amount of effort.
