A comprehensive handbook on the tools, methods, and results of stellar taxonomy, this book describes modern methods of spectroscopic and photometric classification, and identifies particular families of stars, progressing from the hottest to the coolest. Within each category a description is given of the normal types and all the peculiar stars. The emphasis throughout is on the phenomenology of classification, rather than the underlying astrophysics.
