Edited by C.A. Chant.
Sixteenth Year of Publication.
The Handbook for 1924 follows the same lines as that for 1923, but corrections to some of the tables have been made in order to bring them up to date. The general sketch of the planets will be found useful in giving a view of their phenomena during the entire year, while under the heading "The Sky for the Month" are given further details.
Descriptions of the constellations and also 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 (72 c.), Norton’s Star Atlas and Telescopic Handbook (10s 6d.), or Olcott’s A Field-book of the Stars ($1.50).
In the preparation of this H andbook the Editor has been assisted by Mr. J. A. Pearce, M.A., of the Lick Observatory; Mr. R. M. Motherwell, M.A., and Dr. R. J. McDiarmid, of the Dominion Observatory, Ottawa; and Messrs. J. H. Horning, M.A., H. F. Balmer, B.A., H. J. Stowe, B.A., and J. P. Dandy, B.A., of Toronto.
