OBSERVATIONS OF MARS, AT MADEIRA, IN AUGUST and SEPTEMBER 1877 BY N. E. GREEN, ESQ.
Mr. Green's paper discusses his observation of Mars using a 13" Newtonian. His drawings are amazing, and are recreated in litographic detail on heavy stock paper. Large folded map and two detailed observation maps of Mars with Greens own names for the land marks. Many are named after famous Astronomers of his time and of antiquity.
Green knew the canals are a trick of the eye in a time when "Canal Fever was becoming the rage". This very rare package is in excellent condition, and would be prized by any Mars Fan or observer.
