Astronomy books from Oxfam

Recommended Posts

Well, it had been a while since I'd been in my local Oxfam as their range of Astronomy books is usually none existant. Popped in ysterday and grabbed three interesting books from the late 1960's early 1970's. The Sky at Night 3,(1970) Skyshooting: Photography for Amateur Astronomers by Mayall & Mayall (an update! of the 1947 version) (1967) and Norton's Star Atlas (1973). So interesting reading is looming. If anyone else wants a £1.99 copy of Norton's Durham Oxfam is the place (there were two on the shelf.)

I bought "astronomy" by Fred Hoyle for 2 quid - a classic albeit with a bit of an unimaginative title and Patrick Moore's encyclopaedia of something or other for about the same.

charity shops are great so long as you don't mind the old lady smells:)
