King Dethroned - A History of the Evolution of Astronomy from the Time of the Roman Empire up to the Present Day - Showing it to be an Amazing Series (Paperback)
"Kings Dethroned" is a history of the evolution of astronomy from the Roman Empire to the early twentieth century. From Copernicus to Einstein, this volume provides an overview of the developments in the field of astronomy, tracing its history through the "mistakes" of its pioneers and practitioners and putting into question many principles generally considered to be true. This book is highly recommended for everyone with an interest in alternative astronomy and "Flat Earth Theory", and it would make for a fantastic addition to collections of related literature. Contents include: "When the World was Young", "Copernicus and Galileo", "Ole Roemer's Blunder", "Giants of Modern Astronomy", "The Distance to the Moon", "Romantic Theories", "A Galaxy of Blunders", "Mars", "The Transit of Venus, and the Distance to the Sun", "The Birth of a New Astronomy", "Einstein's Evidence", etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on the history of Astronomy.
