Burnham's Celestial Handbook (1978 Dover Edition - Volume 3)

Non-free media information and use rationale for Robert Burnham, Jr.

Paperback book cover for Burnham's Celestial Handbook (1978 Dover Edition - Volume 3). The art used on the cover itself is a photograph of the well-known Crab Nebula.

Source, but widely available elsewhere on the Internet.


Robert Burnham, Jr.

Portion used

Only the front cover of one volume in a three volume set. Absolutely none of the book's content is used, and the value of the work as a whole to the copyright holder cannot be harmed by this use. I believe that its use in this article is covered by U.S. fair use laws.

Low resolution?


Purpose of use

To illustrate or represent the only published work of Robert Burnham, Jr., the subject of the article. This article is also currently the sole entry on Wikipedia which describes that published work.


Not replaceable. No other cover art image, other than a similar one for either volume one or volume two, could be used to serve the purpose already described. To the best of my knowledge, it is a copyrighted cover, and no free image is available that is also a correct representation for the actual book cover.
