This CD contains the "new and enlarged edition" of Alex Keith Johnstons 'School Atlas of Astronomy' published in 1877. This edition has 21 full colour plates showing scientific details of various meteorological formations and events. From meteors to moon phases, eclipses of the sun and moon to maps of the stars. The text comprises, in a condensed form, an elementary survey of the heavens, in which each figure in the plates is popularly explained, and the latest facts of the science are presented.
A beautiful and interesting work, it fulfills the author's desire to offer:
... an exposition of facts and principles relating to the movements and
physical constitution of the celestial bodies, as might serve to render more
easily intelligible, and more interesting, the various representations
contained in the accompanying Atlas.
