Good ancient to modern history astronomy books?

  • #1
Hi, Can anyone recommend some good ancient astronomy books (from around 8000BC-0) that that are historically correct (perhaps springled with a few translations from older writings) with visual images, and that show in some detail how different calculations, and observations were made? It would be nice if it followed a cronological order and somewhat displayed the reasoning back then (perhaps direct translations)

Are there also a book that describes more recent astronomy (0 -2000AD) in such a way?
