Finely Colored Rare Celestial Hemisphere by Giacomo Brunacci
A striking example (old color, gold heightened) of Italian Astronomer Giacomo Brunacci's elegant celestial chart, published by Paolo Petrini in Naples.
Includes the northern and southern skies and images of known planets including Saturn, Jupiter, Mars, Venus, Mercury, plus the moon and the sun, along with descriptive text in Italian below the map.
A scarce double 17th century hemisphere celestial map.
The color and gold are truly exceptional.
