Synopsis

17 GREATEST ASTRONOMERS IN HISTORY is a beautifully handcrafted eBook with more than 100 pictures. 

High school student or a person deeply immersed in the study of astronomy will find basic personal information and pictures alongside the carefully chosen facts from their lives, profession, and career. 

The significant advantage of that book is that the author – also astronomer himself - dutifully recognized and collected their personal accounts with the view highly oriented on the attractive and sometimes adventurous aspects of their lives connected with astronomy. 

The book is enriched by more than 100 illustrations; some are copies of astronomer's original drawings as they were used in the first edition of the book. 

This new edition incorporated some of the pictures from the present time complementing the full experience from the reading and showing the difference in time and space.
