The Concise Knowledge Astronomy, published in 1898, was one of a series of popular reference books by experts. Agnes Clerke (1842–1907) was a successful author of books on astronomy and its history (three of her other works being reissued in this series), and her co-authors were astrophysicist Alfred Fowler, an internationally renowned expert in spectroscopy, and J. Elland Gore, a Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society and expert on variable stars. Illustrated by over 100 photographs and drawings, the book aims to provide the educated non-specialist reader with an understanding of current astronomical knowledge. The application of new technologies, such as photography and spectroscopy, to astronomy in the nineteenth century had led to many new discoveries, and public interest in the subject had greatly increased. The book is divided into four parts - the history of astronomy, astronomical movements and instruments, the solar system, and sidereal astronomy

The Herschels and Modern Astronomy by Agnes M Clerke( )

1 edition published in 1895 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Herschels in this biography are Sir William Herschel (1738–1822), his sister Caroline (1750–1848) and Sir John Herschel (1792–1871), William's son. Sir William was an astronomer and telescope-maker who discovered the planet Uranus in 1781. He was appointed 'the King's astronomer' to George III in 1782, and under his patronage built the then largest telescope in the world. Caroline Herschel worked as her brother's assistant for much of his career but was also an accomplished astronomer in her own right, discovering eight comets and producing a catalogue of nebulae. Her nephew Sir John Herschel was also a distinguished astronomer who made many observations of stars in the southern hemisphere. This book by the astronomer and writer Agnes Clerke (1842–1907), published in 1895, provides both an analysis of their work and an assessment of its contribution to later astronomical research
