Originally created by French astronomer Joseph Jerome le Francais de La Lande in 1775 from dim stars found between Camelopardolis, Cassiopeia, and Cepheus. The constellation represents a farmer harvesting wheat. This area of the sky had previously been known as the "Wheat Field". Another name for the constellation was Le Messier, in honor of the comet hunter Charles Messier. The constellation appear on several star atlases including the above image created by German astronomer Johann Ehlert Bode, but quickly fell out of use and is no longer recognized.
