When I began collecting 19th-century first-edition astronomy books, this set was one of the top 10 items I set out to acquire. But I wasn’t the only one who thought highly of Burritt’s work.

Early history. Early cultures identified celestial objects with gods and spirits.

Progress in astronomy has been so great during the Nineteenth Century that a mere catalogue of the discoveries, and those to whom they are due, would fill vastly more than the space that we have at our disposal, and the work of the astronomer being such that scores of men aid in the making of various discoveries there would be endless controversies as to whom the credit should be awarded.I was flummoxed by the fact that I couldn't vote for ten of my top fifty-one 19th century books, having received the screen admonishment that each book was "not published during this century", even though my cursory online researches indicate that all met that criterion.
