Description

This magnificent star map shows the various constellations visible in the Southern Hemisphere throughout the year. Stars are shown according to a scale of magnitude, which roughly approximates to their brightness in the night sky.

In addition to labeling many of the individual celestial bodies, attractive illustrations highlight the constructed imagery around famous constellations such as Pavo (the Peacock), Cruz (the Southern Cross), and the Argo Navis. Some constellations, such as Robur Carolinum (King Robert’s Oak) are no longer in use.

Engraved in New York by W.G. Evans under the direction of E.H. Burritt. Published in Hartford by J.F. Huntington in 1835.
