Remarkable Eclipses by W.T. Lynn. Published by Samuel Bagster & Sons Limited, 10th edition - 1909
Preface to the book: The favourable reception of the former editions of this little work, the first of which was published in 1896, has induced the author to issue a tenth, brought up to date of the present year, with some improvements. Practically, it consists of two parts, though without formal division : a sketch of the historical and chronological bearing of eclipses seen before their scientific study began, which may be said to date from the one which was total in England in the year 1715; and a rapid survey of the observations made of those which have occurred since, and the discoveries resulting from them. By the kind permission of the Astronomer Royal, Sir William Η. M. Christie, I am enabled to reproduce, as a frontispiece to this work, one of his beautiful photographs of the total eclipse of the 30th of August, 1905, taken at Sfax in Tunisia. W. T. L.
