Observer's Handbook 1915

WMacDonald's picture

PREFACE

The Handbook for 1915 differs from that for last year chiefly in the omission of the brief review of astronomical progress, and the addition of (1) a table of double stars, (2) a table of variable stars, and (3) a table containing 272 stars and 5 nebulae. This last table was prepared by Mr. W. E. Harper, M.A., and gives in a concise form a mass of useful and interesting information regarding the brighter stars. It will be found a valuable feature.
