|The Great Observatories of the World|
Serge Brunier and Anne-Marie Lagrange, translated by Klaus R. Brasch, 240 pages, Firefly Books, 2005, (Originally published by Bordas, 2002); hardcover, $59.95
Approaching an observatory for the first time, often by way of a winding, treacherous road, has always given me a thrill. This book, beautiful in layout, will allow anyone to visit vicariously the world's major observatories.
