Sidney Hall, Urania’s Mirror (1824)

Sidney Hall, Urania's Mirror, Bootes Canes Venatici, Coma Berenices, and Quadrans Muralis, 1825

British engraver and cartographer Sidney Hall (1788–1831) made a boxed set of 32 constellation cards, Urania’s Mirror, or a view of the Heavens, first published in 1824. It was heavily inspired by Alexander Jamieson’s Celestial Atlas.

They are available at the Library of Congress for high-res download, and on Wikimedia Commons slightly color corrected and in various sizes.
