    For sale, an original 1895 copy of Elger’s The Moon, in nice tidy condition. Unfortunately, the four quadrant maps of the Moon have been skillfully removed. These could be printed out from the internet and inserted if desired. Despite the missing maps, it is a gorgeous book. Very nostalgic.

    Open to offers. Postage and packaging will be under £5.

    Proceeds will go to the Society for the History of Astronomy Library Fund.

    I may very well be interested. Guideline price?

    If it had the maps, I suspect £1000.

    But it doesn’t, so my question remains.

    I think it is worth £300 or more.
