1 ADAMS, Walter Sydney (1876-1956). "Some results of a study of the spectra of Sirius, Procyon, and Arcturus with high dispersion."
Offprint from: Astrophysical Journal, Vol. XXXIII, 1911. 1911 
Series: Contributions from the Mount Wilson Solar Observatory, No. 50. 256 x 173 mm. 8vo. 8 pp. 2 tables. Printed wrappers. Fine. FIRST SEPARATE EDITION. Walter Adams turned from studies of the sun to other, larger stars. He later wrote "The study attained its primary objectives, but in addition it provided in the field of physics the first clues to the analysis of complex spectra according to energy levels in the atom, in solar physics the discovery of magnetism in the sun, and in astro-physics a new and fundamental method for determining the distances of the stars." Adams, Cooperation in solar research, pp. 135-137. DSB, I, pp. 55-58.

9 GINGERICH, Owen (editor). Astrophysics and Twentieth-Century Astronomy to 1950. Part A.
Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1984. 0521242568 / 9780521242561 
Series: The General History of Astronomy, Volume 4. Sq. 8vo. x, [2], 198, Aviii, Ivi pp. Black cloth, pictorial dust-jacket. Fine. ISBN 10: 0521242568 ISBN 13: 9780521242561 First edition. Volume 4 of The General History of Astronomy, originally published in 1984, concerns the birth of modern astrophysics in the nineteenth century, the growth of astronomical institutions to around 1920, and the development of instrumentation. The volume commences in the 1850s, with the first astronomical applications of photography and spectral analysis. It closes in the 1950s, before the explosive growth made possible by new electronic devices and computers. In Part A, there are eleven chapters, written by an international panel of eighteen authors, on subjects such as observatories, large telescopes, astronomy in the southern hemisphere, and early radio astronomy. Intended for general readership, this book formed part of an in-depth synthesis of the development of astronomy from the earliest times. First Edition.
