EASTERN ASTROLABES, VOLUME II: Historic Scientific Instruments of the Adler Planetarium & Astronomy Museum

The most sophisticated astronomical instrument of the pre-telescopic era, the astrolabe combined a simple observational tool with an elegant analogue computer. That unique and surprisingly beautiful instrument is the subject of this volume, highlighting a number of notable examples and placing them in the context of the Islamic religious practices that inspired their creation. Well illustrated in color.
