Plate XXXI from Thomas Wright's An Original Theory or New Hypothesis of the Universe (1750), a richly illustrated work (embellished with both fragments of poetry and stunning images) explaining his theories on the universe, including the appearance of the Milky Way as "an optical effect due to our immersion in what locally approximates to a flat layer of stars".
