Caption: Lunar crater model. 19th-century Woodburytype photograph of a model depicting a lunar crater. This photograph is of a plaster model representing the lunar surface, with the illumination from various angles to show the landscape more realistically than a telescope image. This image is from 'The Moon: considered as a planet, a world, and a satellite' (1874, 2nd edition) by Scottish engineer, amateur astronomer and artist James Nasmyth (1808-1890) and British astronomer James Carpenter (1840-1899).
