Coloured celestial chart taken from the Jansson edition of Andreas Cellarius’ “Harmonia Macrocosmica” which was first published in 1660 and reissued in 1661. The chart shows an image of the earth illustrating its motion in both a theoretical North/South orientation and its actual state on a tiled axis. This finely decorated chart also shows celestial and terrestrial longitudes and the influences of the stars. Other than a paper/printing flaw in the top right corner just touching the image and some discolouration, a beautifully old-coloured example in very good condition. 43.5 cm x 51.5 cm
