“The Large Magellanic Cloud” Atlas is a classic 167-page atlas published in 1967 by the Smithsonian Press. It was produced by Paul W. Hodge and Frances W. Wright at the Smithsonian Institution Astrophysical Observatory. Each page is an individual heavy paper image measuring 11.5” x 11.25” and are all enclosed in a heavy box. The atlas is accompanied by a 108-page summarizing book entitled “The Large Magellanic Cloud” by these authors. The atlas weighs approximately 9 lbs. This atlas is unblemished and in “new” condition and probably has not been used. It is one of the finest items from my extensive collection of astronomy wares. This should belong in an observatory, confirmed by knowledgeable individuals at Stellafane, where I brought it a couple years ago; it caused quite a stir, along with my 1981 Lick Observatory Star Atlas (which has sold)!!

This is truly a fair asking price for this classic, in usually great condition -- only $180, plus shipping (Media Mail) and 4% PayPal fee. Smoke-Free and COVID-Free home.
