Classical Deities in Astronomy: The Employment of Verse to Commemorate the Discovery of the Planets Uranus, Ceres, Pallas, Juno, and Vesta
Clifford J. Cunningham and Günther Oestmann
From 1781 to 1807 five new planetary objects transformed our basic ideas about the nature of the solar system.

For the first time, they are collected here and put into context.
