The World in the Moon

At some time between 1764 and 1772, the printmaker Filippo Morghen , a Florentine based in Naples, issued a curious set of ten etchings under the title ‘A Collection of the most notable things seen by Sir Wilde Scull, and by M. de la Hire, in their famous voyage from the Earth to the Moon.’ Details from these prints follow below.
