Description or summary of the book: History of Astronomy is a classic science history text by George Forbes. An attempt has been made in these pages to trace the evolution of intellectual thought in the progress of astronomical discovery, and, by recognising the different points of view of the different ages, to give due credit even to the ancients. No one can expect, in a history of astronomy of limited size, to find a treatise on 'practical' or on 'theoretical astronomy,' nor a complete 'descriptive astronomy,' and still less a book on 'speculative astronomy.'
