Lord Rosse's drawing of M33

[M33, Lord Rosse]

Drawing of M33, the Triangulum spiral galaxy, created by R.J. Mitchell on the ground of observations by William Parsons, the Third Earl of Rosse.

Rosse remarks: "[M33 is] full of knots. Spiral arrangement. Two similar curves like an "S" cross in the center.
