Opis: A Photographic Atlas of Selected Regions of the Milky Way - Edward Emerson Barnard

Edward Emerson Barnard's Photographic Atlas of Selected Regions of the Milky Way was originally published in two volumes in 1927. Together, these volumes contained a wealth of information, including photographic plates of the most interesting portions of the Milky Way, descriptive text, charts and data. Only 700 copies were printed, making the original edition a collector's item. Reproduced in print for the first time, this edition combines both volumes of Barnard's Atlas. It directly replicates Barnard's text, and contains high-resolution images of the original photographic plates and charts, reordered so that they can be seen together. It also includes a biography of Barnard and his work, a Foreword and Addendum by Gerald Orin Dobek describing the importance of the Atlas and additions to this volume, and a pull-out section with a mosaic of all 50 plates combined in a single panorama. 'One of the greatest astronomy books of all time is back - and it's better than the original ... Dobek brings to this book his knowledge of the astrophysics of dark nebulae and their observation, and a deep love, appreciation, and sensitivity for the cultural and historic worth of this work ... This is a must for every astrophysics department, every library, and every astronomer who loves the sky, the romance of the subject, and its magnificent history.' Graeme White, James Cook University 'A modern restoration and reproduction of Barnard's tour de force ...' Terence Dickinson, SkyNews Magazine 'Dobek has gone to great lengths to reproduce the 'feel' of the original ... This wonderful book is a great tribute to a talented and meticulous astronomer, and although of great interest from a historical perspective, the original work is still of value to a modern audience. 5/5 stars.' Steve Richards, Sky at Night Magazine 'Not only is the reproduction of this book welcome as a historical document, but Barnard's large scale photographs are still useful today for understanding the larger context of individual star forming regions. Barnard would have been thrilled to see this modern version of his main body of work.' Bo Reipurth, The Star Formation Newsletter 'Dobek has arranged the original material to show the plates and charts on facing pages and produced a summary chart showing the locations of all the plates across the sky. It is a handsome volume, and Dobek has added to its appeal ...' Astronomy and Geophysics 'Valuable for all readers with a keen interest in observational astronomy.' Choice 'This is a really beautiful Atlas.' The ObservatoryForeword Gerald Orin Dobek; Preface from the original Atlas; Introduction from the original Atlas; Bibliography from the original Atlas; Catalogue of 349 dark objects in the sky; Biography of Edward Emerson Barnard.
