Where is this image from?

I love this image of the stars in the northern and southern hemispheres. Apparently it's French and from a 1922 antique book. That's all I know. I'm guessing it's available somewhere on many of the free image repositories on the Internet, but I have been unable to find it.

It's not a coincidence that it shows up in two Etsy stores (link 1 you already saw, link 2). This image is SOMEWHERE. I'd actually just buy it from one of these sellers, but I want a canvas print, and neither one offers canvas prints. So, here I am, asking the Internet. Any super sleuths out there?

These folks sell prints on cotton paper of what looks like the same image. At any rate their website has a higher resolution copy of the image.

Here is a similar set of pictures from Popular Science Monthly Volume 87 September 1915. Captioned "Fig. 5. Distribution of Nebulæ (and Star Clusters). According to Proctor. Nebulæ are marked by dots; clusters by crosses."
