Description

Scarce decorative celestial map by Matthaus Seutter, published in Augsburg circa 1730 and later re-issued by Johann Michael Probst, after Seutter's death.

The map includes two maps of the northern and southern skies. A diagram in the upper right corner showing the monthly orbit and illumination of the moon, while another in the upper left represents day and night on the earth with quotations from Genesis. Five additional diagrams along the bottom represent the monthly orbit and illumination of the moon, the different planetary hypotheses of Tycho Brahe, Corpernicus, Ptolemy and the annual orbit of the sun and the seasons.
