For all you serious planetary historical students and observers, here are two seldom found books on the planets. Both are in like new, unmarked condition in dust jackets with acid-free plastic covers.
My digital camera flash caused the dust jackets to appear worn due to a reflection from the plastic cover. In reality, both dust jackets look new.
Makes a great matching set of books.
1. Atlas of the Planets. (Paul Doherty). 1980. 143 pages. A most unusual book. You will not find photographs here, but instead you will find awesomely detailed backyard drawings by the author using a 16 inch Newtonian. 85 full-color and black/white illustrations and 26 explanatory diagrams. The observations were done from England. An amateur astronomer could really relate to the contents of this book.
2. Atlas of the Planets. (Vincent De Callatay and Audouin Dollfus). 1974. 152 pages. A simply outstanding documentation of planetary observing from the earliest time through the heyday of telescopic observing from the great observatories of Europe. Numerous photos, drawings, and diagrams.
Both of these books again are extremely difficult to find....in any condition. These books are nearly in like new condition and offered only as a pair. $ 120.00. Price includes shipping.
