Excerpt from Br nnow's Spherical Astronomy

The want of a d104-book for Spherical Astronomy has been long felt in the University of Cambridge, and indeed in all the Universities of the British Isles in which the Mathematical Sciences are cultivated. The treatise of Maddy, excellent as it was for the time when it was written, has long since ceased to be of much service for the instruction of students who are desirous of knowing the methods, both theoretical and practical, used by the astronomers of the present time; while that of Woodhouse, though it deals more practically with the operations pursued in fixed Oh servatories, is also comparatively useless, because it describes both instruments and methods which have long been 'oh solete. It has been, at least in part, a consequence of the want of a good treatise on practical astronomy, that this science has been far less cultivated in the University of Cambridge than it ought to have been, and that very few indeed of the students acquire any adequate acquaintance with the methods of the present time, as taught in the works of the great German and English astronomers.
