Underlying Webb's celestial field guide and directions on telescope use was a deep conviction that the heavens pointed observers to the most impressive thoughts of the littleness of man, and of the unspeakable greatness and glory of the Creator A classic and well-loved work by a passionate practitioner, the monograph remains an important landmark in the history of astronomy, as well as a tool for use by amateurs and professionals alike.
