FIRST EDITION. "An interesting and curious old work in which the stars appear as in the Uranometria [of Johann Bayer], but instead of the ancient figures and names of the constellations, numerous saints are enshrined amongst the stars. Biblical names are substituted instead of the so-called heathen ones . . . It is said that Judas or Julius Schiller revived the names given to the Zodiacal groups centuries before by the Venerable Bede, and completed the reformation with all the constellations . . . copies of this work are very rare" (Brown).

Several new objects appear on these charts, some of which have proved fictitious, but among the most important is the great nebula in Andromeda, now classified as M31.
