A handsome engraved celestial map with attractive hand coloring. These sky charts were drawn by Alexander Jamieson in 1822. The charts contain primarily depictions of stars visible to the naked eye, with the constellations drawn in for clarity. The maps include a few major constellations featured in the image, the hand color emphasizing their designs. Other constellations are shown in outline, but without color. The maps are beautifully done and the atlas earned the honor of being allowed to be dedicated to King George IV.
