Star Names – their Lore and Meaning by Richard Hinckley Allen
Publisher, Dover Publications, 1963
Condition: Used – Good. A neat and tight book.
This book is the only complete coverage of its kind in English. It is completely non-technical, hence accessible to etymologists, anthropologists, and amateur star-gazers. But it contains so much unique reading material on early astronomical theory, so many delightful accounts drawn from the pages of books almost impossible to find today, that even the practising astronomer will find it refreshingly new and instructive.
