Caption

Northern constellations. The constellations are represented by artworks of their mythical namesakes. At bottom is a key for the magnitude (brightness) of the stars. The northern celestial pole and the line of the ecliptic are both shown. The title and labels are in French, with the Roman numerals 1 to 24 around the map's circumference. This map appeared in both the 1776 and 1795 editions of Jean N. Fortin's 'Atlas Celeste de Flamsteed', a French edition of the posthumous 1729 atlas by British astronomer John Flamsteed (1646-1719).
