Imperial 800. 78. 6d., bevelled boards ; 98., extra, gilt. THE MIDNIGHT SKY. Notes on the Stars and Planets. By

EDWIN DUNKIN, F.R.A.S., Secretary of the Royal Astronomical Society. With Thirty-two Star Maps, and Numerous

other Illustrations. “I find in it all the qualities of excellence as a book ; lucid, perspicuous at a glance, concise, correct; completely fulfilling its purpose. Those little Maps of the starry spaces far surpass, in clearness and useful worth, all I have seen before in the planisphere way; no reader but by help of them may find, with a minimum of trouble, the star he seeks. It is long since I have seen in any department a piece of work so well done. The surprisingly cheap price too is an essential feature. In my own name and that of all the world, thanks! Chelsea.

“ THOMAS CARLYLE."
