Celestial Maps - Burritt

Elijah H. Burritt's "Celestial Atlas" and "Geography of the Heavens" were first published in Hartford, Connecticut in 1833 and were soon sold out. A second edition of the atlas was printed in Hartford in 1835 and it too quickly sold out. The third edition, "Atlas, Designed to Illustrate the Geography of the Heavens," was printed in New York, also in 1835. The photos below are taken from a reprint of that third printing (reprint source: Janus Publications). A total of 16 editions were printed, the last in 1876.
