Lot Details
PUISEUX, PIERRE HENRI, AND MAURICE LOEWY.
2 large-format views of the Mare Nectaris, and the Montes Alpes region, from the Paris Observatory, March 4, 1895-February 16, 1899, photogravures, each 30¼ x 30 inches (770 x 760 mm), printed captions below giving dates and times, enlargement details, and lunar diameters, matted.

Rare oversize photogravures, believed to be by Puiseux and Loewy. The sheets in their Atlas are around 22½ x 18½ inches. These photogravures may have been intended for the 1900 Paris Exposition (see preceding lot). The view of the Montes Alpes appears to be reversed.
