astronomy for everybody a popular exposition of the wonders of the heavens

Book cover
Published in 1878. By a Canadian-American astronomer and mathematician, a talented popularizer of science Simon Newcomb (1835 –1909). What do we know? Are we not overarrogant in 1902? True is it that the achievements of the last 100 years, as far as scientific observation goes, have been marvelous. But no one can read a volume precisely as is Prof. Newcomb’s “Astronomy for Everybody” without understanding at once what are man’s limitations. As far as the study of heavens is concerned, what we don’t know far surpasses what we do know (The new York Times December 27, 1902).
