Eclipses of the Sun

Nature volume 113, pages 703707 (17 May 1924) | Download Citation



THE title chosen by Prof. Mitchell for this admirable volume does not prepare his readers for the very wide field of information which has been covered by its contents. It is interesting to find how, with so little straining of definition, he has been able to bring in almost a complete treatise on solar phenomena, linking up each feature with some phase of inquiry requiring an eclipse of the sun for its source of information.
