TELESCOPIC APPEARANCE OF THE MOON.

N.d. c.[1850].
Chart 30 x 23 cm. Stained. One of a set of 12 hand-tinted astronomical prints with explanatory card, this item shows the magnified appearance of the Moon, "as seen by Lord Rosse's great telescope", and the text at the bottom includes a description of this view by William Scoresby (1789-1857), which concludes "The general appearance ... was like one vast ruin of nature".
