Alexander Mikhailov - Star Atlas with four maps (1958)

"Star atlas. Four maps of the starry sky up to declination 50S, containing all stars up to 5.5 magnitude."
This was an extremely successful star atlas created by Aleksandr Aleksandrovich Mikhailov (26-04-1888 - 29-09-1983).
The first edition was published in 1913, so even before the Russian Revolution.
My copy is a third, revised edition of 1958 and published by the Academy of Sciences of the USSR.
The love for the starry skies is stronger than politics. I hope.
