ESOshop: Book: ESO'S Early History
This book, written by Professor Adriaan Blaauw (ESO Director General 1970 - 1974), tells the early story of ESO. It begins in the early 1950's when leading European astronomers initiated the project and started a search for the best possible site under the comparatively unexplored southern sky. It describes the development of ESO up to about 1975.
