Striking map set of maps of the heavens, depicting the constellations of the northern and southern hemispheres, along with Comet observations from a number of leading astronomers and other early observers.
Bauerkeller's maps employ a unique printing process which combines letterpress, color lithography, and metal plate printing. His work is quite unique and enjoys an unusual visual appeal. Relatively little is known about Bauerkeller. He is best known for inventing a type of relief printing for city maps called "geomontographie." The city blocks with buildings are raised in white, while streets, squares, parks & rivers are printed in colors.
Bauerkeller's map is very rare on the market, this being the second example of this map we offered in 20 years.
