35. Flamsteed, John. Atlas celeste. Lisbon, 1804

After Flamsteed's atlas had gone through two French and two German editions, it appeared in Portugese in 1804. This atlas is extremely rare, and is such a recent addition to our collection that we have not yet had images made. The plates appear to be copies of the 1795 edition of Lalande, but all the identifying labels are in Portugese, so we have "Araposa" instead of Vulpecula, and "O Boieiro" in place of Bootes. We have not yet determined whether any new information has been added to the 1795 charts.
