"Sidereal Chromatics" by Admiral W. H. Smyth 1864

Here we have a presentation copy of Admiral Smyth's "Sidereal Chromatics", which is about the colors of double stars. The front endpaper has the bookplates of Smyth and the dedicatee, scientific colleague John Lee, with inscription to Joseph Bonomi, cataloguer of the Hartwell Collection of Egyptology and designer of at least one building on the Hartwell estate, where Smyth's astronomical observatory was. This copy was subsequently owned by the British Astronomical Association, with their rubber stamps on the title-page and front free endpaper.
