By Camille Flammarion

"Ce livre est écrit pour tous ceux qui aiment à se rendre compte des choses qui les entourent, et qui seraient heureux d’acquérir sans fatigue une suggestion élémentaire et exacte de l’univers.
N’est-il pas agréable d’exercer notre esprit dans l. a. contemplation des grands spectacles de l. a. nature ? N’est-il pas utile de savoir au moins sur quoi nous marchons, quelle position nous occupons dans l’infini, quel est ce soleil dont les rayons bienfaisants entretiennent l. a. vie terrestre, quel est ce ciel qui nous environne, quelles sont ces nombreuses étoiles qui pendant l. a. nuit imprecise répandent dans l’espace leur silencieuse lumière ? Cette connaissance élémentaire de l’univers, sans laquelle nous végéterions comme les plantes, dans l’ignorance et l’indifférence des reasons dont nous subissons perpétuellement les effets, nous pouvons l’acquérir, non seulement sans peine, mais encore avec un plaisir toujours grandissant."
