M. Davidson, D.Sc., F.R.A.S., "An Easy Outline of Astronomy" (Thinker's Library series: London, Watts & Co., 1943; second impression (revised), December 1943). Hardcover (red cloth-effect textured boards), 108pp plus title, preface and contents pages and double-sided frontispiece, measuring approximately 10.8 x 16.7 x 1.3cm (4.25 x 6.55 x 0.5in). The "Book Production War Economy Standard" mark appears on the reverse of the title page. "This work is intended for those who have no knowledge of astronomy, and has been designed to present the subject in the simplest language... The black-out has been responsible for arousing a considerable amount of interest in the heavenly bodies, and those who had given no thought to the wonders of the heavens in pre-war days are now finding how fascinating the subject can be." No dustjacket; the cover is marked and discoloured with age wear including bumping to edges and corners, an indentation to the back board, creasing to the spine and tearing to the spine hinge ends; the pages (which are of comparatively low grade wartime paper) are discoloured with occasional marks, a few creases, and slight edge and corner wear.
