recent arrival
A beautifully engraved title page for Johann Gabriel Doppelmayr's celestial atlas. Beneath palm trees in a classical scene stand the great cosmographers Ptolemy, Copernicus, Kepler and Brahe involved in earnest discussions, whilst above cherubs support a banner bearing a diagram of the solar system. Either side of the title at the lower edge are illustrations of astronomical sighting and measuring equipment. A very attractive example.
