London: Seeley & Co., 1889. Hardcover. "Fourth Thousand." A charming astronomy book written for children. Agnes Giberne (1845 -1939) was a prolific British novelist and scientific writer. Her fiction was typical of Victorian evangelical fiction with moral or religious themes for children. She also wrote books on science for young people, a handful of historical novels, and one well-regarded biography. Among the Stars, or wonderful things in the sky, intended for younger children, tells of a boy called Ikon who has the solar system and stars explained to him by a professor. St James's Gazette said that Giberne "tells about the wonderful things in the sky in clear pleasant language that every child can understand, and in a manner that is probably new to them. Some of the lessons are illustrated by little experiments which will be both amusing and instructive to repeat in the nursery; and there are visits the sun and moon that read like strange and beautiful fairy-tales. In every way this is a most excellent book for children [Wikipedia]. Bound in red leather with gilt titling to spine and gilt dentelles. All edges gilt.
