Everybody is interested in eclipses - particularly eclipses of the Sun. Ever since ancient times they have aroused excitement and, in previous years, alarm! This book by Sheridan Williams is most timely. So far as I know there is nothing else like it... a truly splendid book and an invaluable reference, and will most certainly have an honoured place on my bookshelf.

Eclipses of all kinds have entranced mankind since time began. They have been responsible for all sorts of human behaviour, from starting wars, announcing a new king, to signalling death. A total solar eclipse is one of nature's most spectacular sights, and its stupendous beauty cannot be exaggerated. Life is incomplete if you have not seen one, and having seen one, you will stop at nothing to see another.
This book at last provides answers to:and is a definitive reference guide to the subject of UK Solar Eclipses.
