Star Names and Their Meanings
1899. This volume of star names is not intended for the professional astronomer, but as a reference to fill a vacancy in popular astronomical literature. It contains a sketch of the lunar and solar zodiacs which are constantly alluded to in the treating of individual constellations; as well as a detailed list of the constellations, their history among the nations, cataloging and early treatment by authors and their connection with astrology, art, folklore, literature and religion.

Tons of information about each constellation and star. Excellent data base, but hard to read due to a poor editing with too many fonts in some cases way too small to read comfortable. Read full review
