RUDAUX, LUCIEN
Manuel Pratique D'Astronomie
Biblioteque Larousse, Paris. 1925, 1st Edition. Hardcover. 256 pages (complete). In French throughout. Lucien Rudaux was an astronomical painter and pioneer. His paintings of the surface of the Moon and of Mars were sufficiently prescient and accurate that they are still held true today! A crater on Mars has been named after him. His photographs of the planets (in this book) were among the best of their kind at the time. His methods blazed a path followed by many. This copy of this fascinating book is quarter leather. It is much worn and knocked about from storage. The covers, edges, corners and spine are worn and scruffy and marked. The papertrims are mildly marked. Inside, the pages are annotated and much used. However, they are eager, informative, clear, comprehensive, diligent, content. fk. Fair/No Jacket.

WARNER, BRIAN
Charles Piazzi Smyth: Astronomer-Artist : His Cape Years, L835-1845
A.A. Balkema, Cape Town and Rotterdam for the University of Cape Town. 1983, 1st Edition. (ISBN: 086961133X). Hardcover. 144 pages (complete). Signed by Brian Warner on the title page. Not many people can or could boast of having a crater on the moon named after them. Charles Piazzi Smyth would have been one of them. He was Astronomer Royal for Scotland and worked, under tough financial conditions, in the now iconic Observatory on Calton Hill in Edinburgh. His early years in Cape Town made him hungry for astronomical research and clearer skies for observation. This copy is handsome and neat. The front cover has some mild surface marking. Inside, the contents are tidy, tight, clear, clear as if unread throughout. fk. Very Good/No Jacket. signed.
