    These two volumes form an important addition to any astronomical reference library. They contain detailed information that could only be obtained elsewhere with great difficulty. Many antiquarian booksellers fondly thought that the sale of their reference libraries would significantly boost their pension funds only to see the value of many titles plummet as they only contain information that can now be accessed readily on the internet. This work however deservedly joins my much reduced reference library of books with enduring value.

    There have been many catalogues and bibliographies of Star Atlases published over the years, but they mostly concentrate on high end atlases that are prohibitively expensive and almost impossible to own or even see. This catalogue is refreshingly different as it concentrates on atlases owned by the author of this catalogue. Although some of the Atlases described are difficult to obtain and quite expensive there are also atlases that are more common and relatively inexpensive. Therefore this catalogue represents a collection that can be tracked down by a persistent amateur book collector. This is particularly useful for book collectors and is fairly unique. The catalogue is well produced and has very good illustrations. Highly recommended.

    Celestial atlases are important both historically, as illustrating the transition from depicting the constellations as legendary creatures, etc. to the plotting of the positions of individual stars with ever-increasing accuracy, and aesthetically, as objects of beauty in their own right. The title of this work, however, is misleading, as this is no dry listing of published atlases, but rather a cornucopia of illustrations, many in colour, from atlases of all periods, arranged in alphabetical order of author and accompanied by bibliographical details and comment. The quality of reproduction is very good, though it is unfortunate that the illustrations couldn't have been printed on high-quality glossy art paper (doubtless because this would have added considerably to the cost). I would also have liked more accompanying text, as the detailed story behind the publication of an individual atlas is often fascinating, as is the character of many of the authors/cartographers themselves!... More > Nevertheless,I can wholeheartedly recommend these two volumes to anyone interested in the subject. They are very good value for money and should be in every astronomical library, whether institutional or individual.< Less
