Artist's Description

This rare hand colored map of the stars of the southern hemisphere was engraved W. G. Evans of New York for Burritt’s 1856 edition of the Atlas to Illustrate the Geography of the Heavens. It represents the night sky and constellations of the Southern Hemisphere. Constellations are drawn in detail and include depictions of the Zodiacal figures the stars are said to represent. Included on this chart are Hydra (the Snake), Dorado (the Sword Fish), Pavo (the Peacock) and the Centaur. Chart is quartered by lines indicating the Solstitial and Equinoctial Colures. This map, like all of Burritt’s charts, is based on the celestial cartographic work of Pardies and Doppelmayr. Dated and copyrighted: “Entered according to Act of Congress in the year 1856 by F. J. Huntington in the Clerks Office of the District Court of the United States in the Southern District of N. York.
