Atlas photographique de la Lune, considered the ultimate achievement of nineteenth century astronomical photography, is digitally showcased for the first time. The atlas is comprised of 71 photographs that together map the moon's surface. Completed over 14 years between 1896 and 1910, complete sets of all 12 booklets, which are highly prized by collectors, are extremely rare.
 
In this digital rendering of all 12 booklets, each photograph is accompanied by a semi-transparent overlay on which Lwy and Puiseux mapped the craters and rocky peaks that mark the moons surface, and these are now available at the tap of a finger.
 
Accompanying the digital edition is an introduction by Quentin Bajac, Chief Curator of Photography at the Museum of Modern Art, New York.
