Very decorative celestial chart of the southern skies with, in each corner, pairs of cherubs displaying a clock, quadrant, telescope and other scientific instruments. 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 made, but some maps had been previously published by Homann, either bound into atlases or issued as separate sheets.
