November 8, 2010 #110 – Biographies of Famous Astronomers of the 1800’s.

If you are interested in some of the people that were instrumental in hauling astronomy into the light of science, Google Books has a volume that is a must read. As I was looking at the offerings I came across a 1905 book entitled, “Astronomers of To-Day and Their Work”,  by Hector Macpherson, Jr. In this volume there are biographies of twenty-seven renowned astronomers. Many of their names are still well known. Take a look, there is a lot of good historical information to be discovered in this book.
Here is some info about the contents.(Click to read)
