ESA Hipparcos/Tycho 17 Volume Set on eBay
      #5438231 - 09/24/12 02:47 PM

Someone on eBay is auctioning the entire 17 volume set of the ESA Hipparcos and Tycho Catalogues, which includes (in volumes 14-16) the Millennium Star Atlas:

The set looks to be in very nice shape, but the bidding does start at $850, with shipping at $75. I don't know the bidder or otherwise have any connection to the auction. Just thought that some of the bibliophiles here might be interested in seeing what the set looks like. The bibliophile in me might want the set (though not at that price) but another part of me definitely sees the logic of going digital given the massive size of the set--the listing states that the set takes up 21 inches of shelf space, weighs 65 lbs, and is 12" x 8 1/2". I have the hardcover set of the Millennium Star Atlas and can attest to the sheer heft of just those three volumes alone!
