Unknown artist Flammarion engraving (color added), from L’atmosphère: météorologie populaire, 1888
The first documented appearance of the Flammarion engraving is in the 1888 L’atmosphère: météorologie populaire (The atmosphere: popular meteorology) by Camille Flammarion. The engraving is a composite of images from different historical periods and is possibly the work of Flammarion (1842–1925), a French astronomer who also studied the occult and wrote novels. A crater on the moon and one on Mars have been named after him.
