Overview

• The book is an edited and illustrated version of the original one and includes 18 or more unique illustrations which are relevant to its content.
• The table of contents shows the scheme of study to be pursued, and to facilitate the work it is desirable that the student follow the therein circumscribed order.
A knowledge on the part of the reader of Ursa Major, or "the Dipper" as it is commonly called, and "the Pleiades," the well-known group in Taurus, is presupposed by the author.
With this knowledge as a basis, the student is enabled in any season to take up the study of the constellations. By following out the order dictated, he will in a few nights of observation be enabled to identify the various configurations making up the several constellations that are set apart for study in that particular season.

I really liked this book. It gave me information on the stars and the constellations and where to look. But i think it would help if you had a planisphere with you (look up on google). It can be a little boring but has good information. It gives u pictures on the constellations and has some stars labeled. If u wanted easy pictures and to the point, get another book because this book gives mostly information but u are welcome to try it. :)
