The Face of the Moon; Star Atlases

The Cartoonist has discovered the Linda Hall Library of Science, Engineering and Technology in Kansas City, which has quite a bit of stuff on celestial mapping. In addition to an exhibition of rare books and maps called The Face of the Moon: Galileo to Apollo, the library’s site has made available three digitized old star atlases: Johann Beyer’s Uranometria (1603); John Flamsteed’s Atlas céleste (1776); and Kornelius Reissig’s Sozviezdiia Predstavlennyia (1829).
