(1) Everyman's Astronomy (2) Starcraft

Article metrics


(1)THE title of Miss Proctor's book is rather misleading, as it suggests a general elementary treatise. Actually, it is a collection of seventeen disconnected essays on astronomical subjects, written in a popular style. In its general scope it is somewhat reminiscent of the many similar volumes of essays published, sixty or seventy years ago, by the author's distinguished father, the late R. A. Proctor.
