Read full description of the books:
When I was a kid, this was my astronomy go-to. Besides a treasure trove of pictures and statistics, it has a lot of the history of astrophysics written in an approachable, but still informative, way. What did Newton, Huygens, and Einstein contribute? It's all in here. All these years later, it still holds a high standing on my bookshelf, and my children (especially my inquisitive youngest) will pull it down and look at it from time to time.
Further editions have updated the information since when I was a kid, to account for our expanded knowledge of our solar system since the Voyager days. It appears the last one was in 1995 though, so it could definitely use another redo. If that happens, I'll definitely pick it up again!
If you buy one book on astronomy, make it this one. It doesn't have star charts, but it has everything else, most importantly, the reason a person should care enough about the subject to WANT a star chart in the first place.
