ONCE more we welcome the three annuals prepared by Mrs. H. Periam Hawkins as being among the most useful, low-priced aids to amateur astronomers. “The Stars from Year to Year” is practically the same as last year, and in some respects this is to be regretted. For example, turning to “Halley's Comet,” we find the latest information is the statement that “according to the latest computations of Messrs. Cowell and Crommelin it will be nearest the sun on April 30, 1910.” It seems a pity that in a book, apparently issued for 1911, some short résumé of the facts we learned from the re-apparition of so famous an object is not.given.
