Binding is sturdy, square and tight. Previous owner's name stamped neatly on top edge, otherwise as new. No dust jacket as issued. Illustrated with formulas, b/w photos, graphs, and drawings. x, 415 [2] pp. Octavo, 6 1/2 x 9 3/4 inches tall. 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.
