Out of Old Books

Essays on the History of Astronomy by Helen Sawyer Hogg

Helen Sawyer Hogg (1905-1993)

Between 1946 and 1966 the Canadian astronomer Helen Sawyer Hogg (1905-1993) wrote numerous articles on the history of astronomy which were published in The Journal of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada (JRASC) under the title “Out of Old Books”.

Except for a limited and now very rare reprint published in 1974 by the David Dunlap Observatory in only 23 copies, these articles were never collected or reprinted in a widely accessible form. Fortunately, they are now all digitally available as pdf files which can be downloaded from the NASA-ADS website.
