James Keeler's Photos of nebulae and clusters

Keeler's "Photographs of nebulae and clusters ..."

Thursday, November 10, 2011 2:54 AM
Keeler's "Photographs of nebulae and clusters made with the Crossley
reflector" is also available in scanned form from ADS, but the link
to the bibliographic data is done in a very bad form. One has to know
the titles of the chapters to find them in -

only the first
chapter is given under Keeler's name.

Another way to access it is through ,
but this is also not very comfortable.

Both digitized versions have their advantages and disadvantages,
and both are not state-of-the-art. It is now possible to combine
in a PDF file both the scans (images of the pages) and the OCR
text, so that the user can see the original text and can also search
in the OCR'ed text. I may give links to examples if someone
is interested.

Kind regards,
Wolfgang Dick
