L to R, top to bottom..
1. Atlas céleste de Flamstéed 1776;
2. Curious Mathematical Forms - Robert Boyle 1670;
3. Uranometria - Johann Bayer 1603;
4. Poeticon Astronomicon - Hyginius 1482.
These are on a page serendipititiously found in an absent-minded googling fashion. They are within the United States Naval Observatory Library in the Rare Books section. (The jpeg links for each image from that page are HUGE)
A complete high resolution scanned copy of Uranometria can be found at the Linda Hall Library.
