A fine celestial chart by Andreas Cellarius, depicting the constellations of the Northern Sky as viewed from Earth. This chart reflects the theory from classical astronomy that all the stars and planets revolved in a huge sphere around Earth. Shows figures from the zodiac, as well as other fantastical animals and beasts in striking color engravings. Andreas Cellarius was a well-known celestial cartographer of the late 17th and early 18th centuries.

His attractive, beautifully engraved charts depicted theories and evolution in the field of astronomy, from the theories of Ptolemy and Copernicus through the Age of Exploration and its period of scientific development in Europe. This chart originally appeared in Cellarius’ landmark celestial atlas, ‘Atlas Coelestius seu Harmonia Macrocosmica,’ which is known as the finest and most ambitious work of its kind. Cellarius’ original plates for this atlas were reprinted in 1708 by the firm of Valk & Schenk.
