A small collection of antique astronomical illustrations mostly gravures.

La Lune vue à travers le telescope

La Lune vue a Travers le Telescope
Issued +/-1880, Brussels by Kiessling

Fine original antique lithographed celestial print. Printed on heavy paper stock which retains its inherent structural flexibility and soundness.

On the back is affixed a large sheet of yellow tissue paper as issued so the sheet can be held to light and the moon surface will shine through in tinted color.

A charming and delightful 19th century celestial optical toy.
