Astronomy


Celestial Treasury: From the Music of the Spheres to the Conquest of Space
Celestial Treasury : From the Music of the Spheres to the Conquest of Space
by Marc Lachieze-Rey, Jean-Pierre Luminet, Joe Laredo (Translator)

"Throughout history, the mysterious dark skies have inspired our imaginations in countless ways, influencing our endeavors in science and philosophy, religion, literature, and art. Filled with 380 full-color illustrations, Celestial Treasury shows the influence of astronomical theories and the richness of illustrations in Western civilization through the ages. The authors explore the evolution of our understanding of astronomy and weave together ancient and modern theories in a fascinating narrative. They incorporate a wealth of detail from Greek verse, medieval manuscripts and Victorian poetry with contemporary spacecraft photographs and computer-generated star charts..."
Fire in the Sky: Comets and Meteors
Fire in the Sky : Comets and Meteors, the Decisive Centuries, in British Art and Science
by Roberta J.M. Olson, Jay M. Pasachoff, Colin T. Pillinger
"...Britain in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries produced a larger number and greater variety of representations of comets and meteors than anywhere else. This beautifully illustrated book discusses why this was the case and examines the link between these works, and the achievements of British science in the wake of Newton and Halley..."
The Mapping of the Heavens
The Mapping of the Heavens
by Peter Whitfield
Review from Booklist, "...Starting from chiseled Babylonian representations of the Zodiac, Whitfield proceeds to the illumination-type pictures of Ptolemaic spheres, dating from medieval Europe, before devoting most of the book to the period from Copernicus through the mid-nineteenth century..." Gilbert Taylor
