Most widely held works by Sidney Van den Bergh
The galaxies of the Local Group by Sidney Van den Bergh( Book )

24 editions published between 1968 and 2007 in English and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Local Group is a small cluster of galaxies of which thirty-five members are currently known, including the Milky Way. With characteristic clarity of expression, Sidney van den Bergh provides a complete overview of all that is known about the galaxies of the Local Group and their evolution. He also places this knowledge in the wider context of continuing studies of galaxy formation and evolution, the cosmic distance scale, and the conditions in the early Universe. This volume thoroughly details our current understanding of each of the thirty-five members of the Local Group, as well as those galaxies previously regarded as possible members. The book goes on to examine the mass, stability and evolution of the Local Group as a whole and includes many important, previously unpublished results and conclusions
Galaxy morphology and classification by Sidney Van den Bergh( Book )

12 editions published between 1998 and 2010 in English and held by 254 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The classification of galaxies according to their shape is a fundamental tool in astronomy. It is through classification schemes that astronomers build a deeper understanding of how galaxies form and evolve. This long-awaited book by one of the pioneers of the field provides a concise and up-to-date summary of current ideas about galaxy morphology and classification. This is the first book dedicated entirely to the shapes and classifications of galaxies. It introduces the most widely used schemes, explains how they have developed and what they can tell us about galaxies. We are also shown how very distant galaxies (seen with the Hubble Space Telescope, for instance) often defy standard classification schemes. Finally, we look at recent work on the use of computers to automatically classify digital images of galaxies. This topical volume provides graduate students and researchers with a unique and indispensable reference on the classification and shape of galaxies
