The Telescope

Nature volume 71, page 460 (16 March 1905) | Download Citation



THE first edition of this small treatise on the elementary principles of optics as applied to telescopes appeared in 1881. In the present issue the author has left this matter practically as it first appeared, with only one or two minor corrections, but has added a chapter describing in a brief manner the advances that have since been made. At the end is also given a bibliography relating to the telescope, which will be of service to those who wish to study more in detail different branches of the subject to which slight references only have been given. The book is published in the Van Nostrand Science Series, and should prove a useful addition.
