Notes

From a set of 12 hand-tinted astronomical prints that originally came with an explanatory card. The publisher is identified as J. Reynolds or James Reynolds of the Strand, London. These cards were first issued by Reynolds in 1846. They could be bought in sets or singly and, at a price of 1 shilling, were affordable to middle class audiences.
