Planisphaerium Coeleste - 19th Century Old Celestial Chart
A fine art reproduction of an antique celestial map engraving from the 1850's. The celestial sphere is represented as two hemispheres mapping constellations of stars in the night sky. The old star chart features stunning baroque drawings of constellations and astrological signs. Each sign of the zodiac is illustrated. Inset diagrams depict Copernican hypothesis, the Ptolemaic hypothesis, the Tycho Brahe hypothesis as well as phases of the moon, effect of the moon on tides, and annual orbit of earth around the sun.
