Excerpt from The Heavens and Their Story The present book, which stands in the joint names of my wife and myself, is almost Wholly the work of my Wife, as circumstances prevented my taking any further part in it soon after it was commenced. It is not intended as a text-book to teach astronomy; it has rather been written with the hope that the reader may be drawn by it to study astronomy for himself. The old story tells us that King Alfred was first stirred up to a desire to learn to read by his mother showing him the pictures in a beautifully illuminated book. And so it has been our desire to point our readers to some of the pictures presented to us by the heavens, in the hope that they may desire to spell out their meaning for themselves.
