I was checking a few things out at the Internet Archive site and thought I'd see if there was anything by the great Astrophotographer pioneer Edward Emerson Barnard, and really struck it rich!
There's a whack of articles by him. Haven't had a chance to read any yet, but I'm just about to start a month's holiday and hope to read a few....

Anyhow, thought I'd share with everyone here - enjoy...
