The British Celestial Atlas ; being a complete guide to the attainment of a practical knowledge of the heavenly bodies: containing twelve royal quarto maps; or entire views of the starry heavens, as they appear to the naked eye: adapted for every night throughout the year: on which are carefully laid down, all the stars visible in the British Empire, from the first to the fourth magnitude; with the boundaries of the constellations accurately defined. Also, three moveable plates, and a plate of diagrams, to elucidate the motions of the earth and the celestial bodies: accompanied by a familiar treatise on astronomy.
