Description

Nice example of Ottens' edition of Remmet Teunisse Backer's scarce and interesting Dutch-produced celestial chart, which shows the constellations in a Mercator-projection type format, allowing for the constellations of both the northern and southern hemispheres to appear on a single projection.

A table of measurements organized by zodiac sign is shown in the lower portion of the image.

First issued by Remmet Teunisse Backer in 1709.

Condition Description
