Description

First published in 1914, “Star Lore of All Ages” is a wonderful, illustrated book full of interesting and entreating information related to the constellations. Written in simple, plain language and profusely illustrated, this vintage book will appeal to young or amateur astronomers, and it would make for a charming addition to any collection. William Tyler Olcott (1873-1936) was an American lawyer and amateur astronomer who founded the American Association of Variable Star Observers in 1911. Other notable works by this author include: “Variable Star Work for the Amateur Astronomer” (1911), “Star Lore of All Ages” (1911), and “A Field Book of the Stars” (1929). Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with the original text and artwork.
