Women in early British and Irish astronomy : stars and satellites by M. T Brück( Book )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Careers in astronomy for women, as in other sciences, were a rarity in Britain and Ireland until well into the twentieth century. This book investigates the place of women in astronomy before that era, recounted in the form of biographies of about 25 women born between 1650 and 1900 who in varying capacities contributed to its progress during the eighteenth, nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. All deserve to be remembered as interesting individuals in an earlier opportunity-poor age. Placed in roughly chronological order, their lives constitute a sample thread in the story of female entry into the male world of science. The book is aimed at astronomers, amateur astronomers, historians of science, and promoters of women in science, but being written in non-technical language it is intended to be of interest also to educated readers generally
