From his rather modest background in the Derbyshire countryside but seemingly born with a burning interest in astronomy, John Flamsteed rose to become the first Astronomer Royal under King Charles II. His work at the Royal Observatory in Greenwich laid the groundwork for astrology over the next century and achieved world-wide fame. This book is of interest to amateur astronomers and anyone wishing to know about the founding of the Royal Observatory at Greenwich and the work of the 17th Century astronomers who struggled to put the subject on a firm scientific bases.
