[Plani-Spherium Coeleste].

Antwerp: 1725. Hand colored mythological figures in the cusps. Latin constellation names: same as modern scientific usage. Quite similar to the large A. Durer 1515 'Imagines Coeli' and to AM Mallet's 1683 copper plate planisphere. This engraving two centuries after Durer still employs only Ptolemy's original 1022 stars. Celestial sphere prints were in popular demand all over Europe for their educational and decorative value. Very Good. Minor even toning, else bright and clean. Handcolored plates. Item #9523

Price: $345.00
