This atlas is a comprehensive illustration of the morphology of normal, nearby galaxies and how they are classified in the revised Hubble system developed in the 1950s by Gérard de Vaucouleurs, one of the twentieth century's leading astronomers. Using an image database of over 500 galaxies, the de Vaucouleurs classification is made more accessible and understandable so that astronomy researchers, students, and amateurs can apply the system with ease. Because much has been learned about the physical basis of galaxy morphology since de Vaucouleurs published his revision, the atlas contains a comprehensive review of the recent literature, outlining how different morphological features are interpreted. The de Vaucouleurs Atlas of Galaxies is not only a pictorial atlas, but it is an up-to-date reference on our understanding of the physical processes that underlie galaxy morphology.
