Report of the Section for the Observation of Mars (Memoirs of the British Astronomical Association, XX1, Part III

London: Eyre and Spottiswoode, 1919. Octavo. Item #027116

pp. 57-86, with three photographic plates, dealing with apparition of 1913-1914, detailing Mars in W. Quadrature with the Sun through the Vernal Equinox. E.M. Antoniadi was the foremost astronomer on Mars and he contributed the greatest number of drawings, photographs and assessments. His major work The Planet Mars was published in 1930. This copy bears the stamp of Arthur Rambaut who was the royal astronomer of Ireland and became the Radcliffe observer at Oxford in 1897. As Richard McKim writes: "his drawings of the 1909 apparition were unsurpassed both artistically and aerographically." He concludes this study listing the characteristics of the 1913-1914 apparition.
