Flamsteed 1781

The Atlas Coelestis is a star atlas published posthumously in 1729, based on observations made by the First Astronomer Royal, John Flamsteed.
The Atlas - the largest that ever had been published and the first comprehensive telescopic star catalogue and companion celestial atlas contains 26 maps of the major constellations visible from Greenwich, with drawings made in the Rococo style by James Thornhill.
It also presents two planispheres designed by Abraham Sharp.

I own five maps of the 1781 edition.
