This unique volume includes illustrations; a foreword by Gary Kronk, author of the Cometography series; the Chinese and Western names of stars and asterisms; azimuth and time indications in ancient Chinese astronomical records; geographical coordinates of historical capitals of China, Japan, and Korea; Chinese-Western star maps; and titles of the classical text in the original language for the translated observational record.
