From the Observatory is the title of the English-language translation of Prosa del observatorio, a book of text and photographs by Julio Cortázar originally published in Spanish in 1972.[1] The photographs depict the observatories of Maharajah Jai Singh; the text, largely in prose but with sections in verse, ranges meditatively over a number of matters, including eels.
