Description

A map of the celestial and terrestrial hemispheres.

  • Andreas Cellarius (Dutch).
  • Haemisphaeria sphaerarum rectae et obliquae utriusque motus et longitudines tam coelestes quam terrestres ac stallarum affectiones monsrantia. [Hemispheres displaying both the celestial and terrestrial motions and longitudes of either sphere, the upright sphere and the oblique sphere along with the influences of the stars.]
  • Amsterdam: Schenk & Valk, 1708.
  • Original color with additions, including gold highlights. 
  • Unframed.


This chart was published in the Atlas Coelestis; seu Harmonia Macrocosmica, the only celestial atlas to be produced in the Netherlands before the nineteenth century. It was a compilation of maps of the Ptolemaic universe and the more modern theories of Copernicus and Brahe, and remains the finest and most highly decorative celestial atlas ever produced. It was originally published by Jan Jansson in 1660; this chart comes from Schenk & Valk's reissue.
