Antonín Rükl's Moon Atlas will be perhaps the last of the great hand drawn lunar atlases by the wonderful lunar cartographer Antonín Rükl. He died on 12 July 2016 at the age of 86. His atlas has been out of print in the United States. The 2007 edition can still be found 2nd hand, but prices are quite dear. While reading about his life, I discovered that he published a more recent edition with corrections in 2012, A Hold Atlaszain his native Czech and also in German, Mondatlas, which is still in print.
After some searching I found that the folks at Teleskop Austriain Vienna will ship copies to the US with payment via PayPal. I'm pleased to have this last edition and a chance to put my Hochschule Deutsch to use.
