Atlas Coeli

Forums History Antonin Becvar Atlas Coeli

Hi Tony,

I have never seen a copy with the set of negative prints. When I visited Skalnate Pleso we were shown their collection of Becvar atlases and catalogues, so I might have been shown a special edition like yours, but I don’t recall it.

Len, the Stara Lesna ESOP was in 2007. As you know I was in Wakefield yesterday, assessing the extent of Melvyn’s collection of star atlas and catalogues. It includes Atlas Coeli and its Catalogue, so we can set them aside for you if you wish. Melvyn’s atlases have a personal touch because some pages contain his pencil sketches of the tracks of comets that he observed.

Clear skies,
