Sir Joseph Norman Lockyer (1836–1920) was one of the pioneers of astronomical spectroscopy and became one of the most influential astronomers of his time. His main interest was sun spectroscopy, which led him to discover helium independently of Pierre Janssen, a scientist who posited its existence in the same year. In addition to his work in astronomy, Lockyer was one of the founders of Nature and was the editor of the journal for its first fifty years. This is the second edition of Lockyer's guide to spectroscopy, first published in 1878. It begins with the basics of spectroscopy such as the physics of waves and the method of observing spectra. Later chapters describe the history of the method and some of Lockyer's own experiments and findings. This book is a fascinating part of the history of astronomy, giving insights into the development of a method vital to the field

Tennyson, as a student and poet of nature by Norman Lockyer( Book )

18 editions published between 1910 and 2013 in English and held by 294 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tennyson was renowned for his treatment of nature in poetry, and in Tennyson: As a Student and Poet of Nature, eminent English scientist and astronomer Norman Lockyer takes a comprehensive look at Tennyson's views on the natural world. Perhaps no one else in the early twentieth century was more qualified to evaluate the scientific aspects of Tennyson's works than Lockyer; not only was he credited with discovering helium in 1868, but he also contributed numerous important publications and founded the preeminent scientific journal Nature. Along with his wife, Winifred, Lockyer spent decades compiling Tennyson passages on everything from the Milky Way to the breaking of ocean waves, and in this 1910 volume, he demonstrates the impressive scope of Tennyson's scientific knowledge through insightful examination of these passages

The moon considered as a planet, a world, and a satellite by James Nasmyth( Book )

1 edition published in 1874 in English and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nasmyth's wonderfully evocative representations of the lunar surface are the most realistic ever produced by earthbound observers. James Nasmyth was not only the inventor of the steam hammer, that great symbol of victorian engineering, but was also an enthusiastic astronomer. He built a series of increasingly powerful telescopes and won a prize medal at the Great Exhibition for his drawings of the lunar surface (he had inherited a talent for drawing from his father, the painter Alexander Nasmyth.) He then made models of the lunar surface, based on his observations and drawings and the prints in this book are from photographs of these models taken in bright sunlight. Besides the plates the book is important for the discussion of the origins of the moon's physical geography
