Fortin 1776

I am the happy owner of some copper gravures with constellations from 1776.
These maps, some of them hand coloured, are from the atlas of Jean Fortin (1750-1831) "Atlas Céleste de Flamstéed, publié en 1776",
edited by Joseph Jérome le Français de Lalande & Pierre Mechain, second edition, Paris, Lamarch 1776.
