520 8  Annotation|bUntil the publication of the first edition of 
       'Star Maps, ' books were either general histories of 
       astronomy using examples of antiquarian celestial maps as 
       illustrations, or catalogs of celestial atlases that 
       failed to trace the flow of sky map development over time.
       The second editionfocuses on the development of 
       contemporary views of the heavens and advances in map-
       making. It captures the beauty and awe of the heavens 
       through images from antiquarian celestial prints and star 
       atlases. This book uniquely combines a number of features:
       1) the history of celestial cartography is traced from 
       ancient to modern times; 2) this development is integrated
       with contemporary cosmological systems; 3) the artistry of
       sky maps is shown using beautiful color images from actual
       celestial atlases and prints; 4) each illustration is 
       accompanied by a legend explaining what is being shown; 
       and 5) the text is written for the lay reader based on the
       author's experience with writing articles for amateur 
       astronomy and map collector magazines. This updated second
       edition of 'Star Maps' contains over 50 new pages of text 
       and 44 new images (16 in color), including completely new 
       sections on celestial frontispieces, deep-sky objects, 
       playing card maps, additional cartographers, and modern 
       computerized star maps. There is also expanded material 
       about celestial globes, volvelles, telescopes, and planets
       and asteroids.
