Overview

From the earliest ages the study of the stars has exercised the same fascination as it possesses at the present day. Among the most primitive peoples, the movements of the sun, the moon, and the stars commanded attention from their supposed influence on human affairs.

Contrary to what the Barnes & Noble synopsis says, this IS and OCR (optical character reader) captured book with format errors and many wrong characters. It seems to be an exact copy of the file in The Internet Archive, not proofread and corrected by a human. You can understand most of it, but reading is not as pleasant as it could be if the book were corrected for OCR errors.
