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 is from a Schenk and Valk re-issue of Cellarius' "Atlas Coelestis seu Harmonia Macrocosmica", one of the finest 17th century Dutch celestial atlases produced.
