J. & R. Ottens: Planisphaerium Coeleste

Map: CELEST1061
 
Cartographer: J. & R. Ottens
Title: Planisphaerium Coeleste
Date: c. 1740
Published: Amsterdam
Width: 22 inches / 56 cm

Map ref: CELEST1061
Description:
Double hemisphere map showing the heavens charting the stars within their constellations together with smaller diagrams illustrating the Tychonian, Ptolemaic and Copernican projections. Following the introduction of telescopes and the work of Halley and Flamsteed, astronomy became a popular field. The Ottens firm capitalised on this new flowering of the subject with this extraordinarily beautiful piece illustrating the latest discoveries as well as the traditional pictorial constellations. Stunning original hand colour. [CELEST1061]
