Fortin 1795

I am the happy owner of several copper gravures with constellations from 1795.
These maps, most of them hand coloured, are from the atlas of Jean Fortin (1750-1831) "Atlas Céleste de Flamstéed, publié en 1776",
edited by Joseph Jérome le Français de Lalande & Pierre Mechain, third edition, Paris, Lamarch 1795.
