N.B.James
Reynolds produced some wonderful educational astronomical charts from around
1840 to around 1870.They were invariably hand coloured on card with some notes of
explanation etc.Some had very clever tissue insets so that when held up to the
light they illuminated the picture as if by magic and there are some wonderful
transparent images produced to illuminate the sky.He produced v
arious aspects
of astronomy such as stars and constellations,comets,eclipses and planets near
and far from Earth.John
Emslie 1813 to 1875 was the principal artist and engraver of these wonderful
charts
