This is an apparently complete celestial atlas by E. Otis Kendall containing 18 different untitled double-page maps. Twelve of the maps are hand colored and all show good detail of the constellations. This book was intended for use in schools. Published by Butler & Williams in Philadelphia. Hardbound with paper over boards.
Maps are generally clean and bright with some scattered foxing, a few small spots and a hint of toning. Binding is somewhat loose and the boards are bumped and stained.
