'The Beauty of the Heavens : a Pictorial Display of the Astronomical Phenomena of the Universe', 1842 by Charles F Blunt"CASSIOPEIA lies directly opposite to Ursa Major: the fee of Cassiopeia are directed towards the head of that constellation, the interval between them being divided into nearly equal portions by the pole star. The figure is that of a woman seated on a chair, slightly clothed, with both hands raised, holding in the left, a branch of palm, and in the right, a portion of her head-dress."(source)
