Edited by C.A. Chant.

Fourteenth Year of Publication.

PREFACE

The Handbook for 1922 follows the same lines as that for 1921. As Mars comes into opposition this year a fuller account of the motions of that planet is given, with suitable map and diagram. The map showing the path of Uranus is on a larger scale than that of last year, and will be found more useful for those who wish to follow its motion amongst the stars with a field-glass.

As in the last issue, the brief descriptions of the constellations and the star maps are not included, since fuller information is available in a better form and at a reasonable price in many publications, such as: Young’s Uranography (72c.), Upton’s Star Atlas ($3.00) and McKready’s Beginner's Star Book (about $3.50).

To those mentioned in the body of the book; to Mr. J. P. Henderson, M.A., of the Dominion Observatory, Ottawa; and especially to Mr. J. A. Pearce, B.A., thanks are due for their assistance.

The Editor.
Toronto, December, 1921.
