Ravenhall; title-page embossed "PRESENTATION COPY." Near fine. "In his first book, Stellar movements and the structure of the universe (1914), Eddington brought together all the material of some fifteen papers, most of which had been published in the Monthly notices of the Royal astronomical Society between 1906 and 1914. The cosmological knowledge of the period was summarized and the most challenging problems were delineated, and he clearly declared his preference for the speculation that the spiral nebulae were other galaxies beyond our Milky Way, which was itself a spiral galaxy". – DSB IV p. 279.
