Andreas Cellarius: Planishphaerium Braheum

Map: CELEST1059
 
Cartographer: Andreas Cellarius
Title: Planishphaerium Braheum
Date: 1660
Published: Amsterdam
Width: 21 inches / 54 cm
Height: 18 inches / 46 cm
Map ref: CELEST1059
Description:
Tycho Brahe's geocentric model of the solar system wherein the Sun and the Moon orbit the Earth but all the other heavenly bodies orbit the Sun. This model was intended to serve as a compromise between the growing body of scientific evidence suggesting a helio-centric solar system and the Catholic church's dogmatic insistence on a geocentric model of the universe.

Spectacular original hand-colour. [Framed]
