Background and Topics
The Astrolabe, by James E. Morrison: This is a new, absolutely unique and wonderful book on the mathematics needed to create accurate, beautiful designs of astrolabes, quadrants and other related instruments. There is no other book like this one, and I enthusiastically recommend it for anyone with an interest in these instruments. I have written a more detailed review of it on my blog that can be found here. Mr. Morrison's webpage with additional information as well as a sample chapter to download can be found here.
