A collection of 14 original offprints by Eddington (1882-1944), the British astrophysicist who pioneered the study of stellar structure and discovered mass-luminosity relationship. Each has a separate title page, and all are in the original printed wrappers; all are in excellent condition. Other than the first paper listed, all offprints are from the Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society. From the library of the Carnegie Institute of Washington.
