An attractive star chart, one of twelve monthly maps, each extending from the German horizon to about 45 degrees altitude. This particular example looks from north to east. The map shows many of the important constellations as well as naming some of the brightest stars on the chart. Prominent are: Leyer (Lyra): the constellation associated with the myth of the Greek musician and poet Orpheus, Cepheus: named after the mythical King Cepheus of Aethiopia, husband of Cassiopeia and father of Andromeda and the Schwan constellation, Cygnus, which is associated with the myth of Zeus and Leda in Greek mythology. Johann Elert Bode was a self taught astronomer whose texts and atlases on the subject were, and remain, hugely influential.
