An attractively engraved planisphere showing the signs of the zodiac around a planetary diagram and detailed text annotations. Cherubs, mythological figures and portraits of Tycho Brahe and Riccioli decorate the plate. Johann Gabriel Doppelmayr (1677-1750) was an astronomer and cartographer of Nuremberg producing astronomical charts in conjunction with Johann Baptist Homann, map maker and publisher of the same city. The "Atlas Coelestis", published by Heredum Homannianorum - the Heirs of Homann after his death in 1724, was one of the major celestial atlases of the eighteenth century and comprised up to 30 maps, plans and charts of celestial events and phenomena. Only one edition of the atlas was issued, but some maps had been previously published by Homann, either bound into general world atlases or issued as separate sheets.
