Berlin: Springer-Verlag, 1986. First Edition, First Printing. Cloth. Near fine/none as issued. About fine, first edition, first printing. Brown, mustard and white cloth boards. Binding is sturdy, square and tight. Previous owner's name stamped neatly on top edge, otherwise as new. No dust jacket as issued.

These proceedings are concerned with discoveries from the Infra-Red Astronomical Satellite IRAS including follow-up projects in theoretical and observational astronomy. In particular, they stress the solar system results from IRAS. A huge range of astronomical topics is addressed including asteroids, comets, dust in the solar neighbourhood, young stars, old stars, the interstellar medium, and the Galactic cosmic background at various wavelengths.. ---Publisher's web site The impact of IRAS on asteroidal science, S.
