price out of this world Feb 21, 2004
This is one of the finest books on the history of early astronomy I have ever read. It is highly recommended. Oxford University Press published it years ago in hardcover (the edition I read). I wanted to reacquire it but when I saw the price my jaw dropped ! It covers early egyptian astromony (what little there is of it)and does a masterful job on babylonia . The price however, prohibits me recommending it to anyone, as it is possible to cover the subject as a much lower cost. ASTRONOMY BEFORE THE TELESCOPE , FROM THE OMENS OF BABYLON and ANCIENT ASTRONOMY AND CELESTIAL DIVINATION are three other books that come to mind, the latter two dealing exclusively with Babylonia. For Egypt there is Lockyer's DAWN OF ASTRONOMY. The list goes on. Still, it is a first rate study of the subject.
