Book # 150ZcycH9q3g 147
Beautiful yellow embossed antique illustrated book "Steele's New Astronomy, The Story of the Stars, New Descriptive Astronomy" by Joel Dorman Steele, PH. D.

This book is in great condition, with war along the cover edges. Most pages are perfect and clean, however I recall seeing some minor stains and pencil markings on random pages. Also some writing (name and number) on the first few pages.
