Abstract

THE Annuaire for 1947 follows the usual plan of earlier issues, with a few minor modifications, and maintains its excellent standard. It may be pointed out that amateur astronomers, who are playing an increasing part in astronomical developments, would find this publication a very useful handbook as complementary to the “Nautical Almanac”. Much of the information is tabulated in a very concise and convenient manner, and also various branches are dealt with which are outside the scope of the “Nautical Almanac”. Thus, lists of comets, meteor radiants, distances, spectral classes, temperatures, diameters of stars, of variable stars, etc., and also interesting phenomena for each day, provide very handy material for amateurs who might otherwise find it necessary to search different books of reference for such information. Members of the British Astronomical Association, who depend on the Association's Handbook for data on different sides of astronomy, would find the Annuaire a useful addition to their bookshelves. Star maps for each month of the year will prove acceptable to many readers.
