Description: Presented in a very similar format to the How and Why series from the same period, this rare book provides an enthralling introduction to astronomy for young and old alike.
Illustrated with a mix of beautiful colour, b&w, and two-tone monochrome paintings, plus diagrams, star charts, and full-colour photographs.
Pictorial covers. Front has a pronounced horizontal crease running across the bottom, and slight damage from where two adhesive labels once lived (refer to image). Rear cover is in excellent condition. Slight damage to tail of spine. Front cover has come away slightly near the bottom, but shows no sign of wanting to fully part company with the binding. Internally, the book is in excellent condition for its age: the lightly tanned pages are clean, crisp, and very tightly bound. Not a single jot of foxing is to be found.
