[Plate XXIV 'Sancti Iacobo maiori' (St. Jacob major) replacing Gemini, from Coelum Stellatum Christianum].

Augsburg: 1627. A serious scientific endeavor at the time, Schiller attempted to replace the pagan constellations with Christian symbolism. He recieved the most current astonomical information from Tycho Brahe, Johannes Bayer, and Johannes Kepler; probably around 2000 stars. Very Good. Minor edge wear, small closed tear at left, light even toning, else bright and clean. Item #9524

Price: $500.00
