The very first annual publication of the Lick Observatory, Mt. Hamilton, Ca. This is the original publication, not a reproduction.

Author: Edward S. Holden, LLD
311 pages with hand-drawn illustrations
Hard bound
Very good condition, especially considering it's age. There are no dog-eared or missing pages. The printing is crisp and legible. There is some slight uniform yellowing on all pages from age.
Binding is tight and without separation.

The book was originally presented to the Hon. John J. Doyle by the trustees of The James Lick Trust. It was then the property of the University of California, Berkeley, Library. Before I acquired it from a Palo Alto, California bookstore in the early 1960's, it was owned by a Joseph M. Gleason.


  • Condition Very Good
  • Location Idaho Falls, Idaho
