1887 Constellations and How to Find Them, 3rd Edition by William Peck, with 13 beautiful midnight blue and white star chart illustrations. To the best of my knowledge this is the only original copy of this edition that I’ve found on the online market. Later and digital copies exist, but in my opinion lack the charm and allure of this very clean early edition. Gifted on Christmas 1890, the book contains areas of careful handwritten notes which for me simply adds to the beauty of this book. Well bound with clean supple pages.

No mold mildew or smoke smells, but a pleasant “old book” aroma.

Wonderful complete early astronomy text or plate it out for beautiful scientific interior design plates! Too many to picture!
