Two Woodburytype photographs, one entitled 'Full Moon Exhibiting the Bright Streaks Radiating from Tycho etc.', and the other 'Glass Globe Cracked by Internal Pressure Illustrating the Cause of the Bright Streaks Radiating from Tycho etc.' The first is taken by Warren De La Rue in about 1855. This is Plate XIX from a book, published in 1874, entitled 'The Moon, Considered as a Planet, a World, and a Satellite' by Nasmyth and James Carpenter, an astronomer at the Royal Observatory in Greenwich. The book was based on their observations of the moon through drawings, photographs and models.
