Harmonia Macrocosmica

German-Dutch latin school rector Andreas Cellarius is renowned in celestial cartography for his 1660 Harmonia Macrocosmica. It is an atlas of the celestial world systems of Copernicus, Brahe, Ptolemy and Aratus, supplemented with numerous other cosmolographical starmaps and plates. All told, there are 30 double folio colour plates (inventory of copies) and together with an accompanying latin text, the University of Utah has a complete facsimile of the 1661 edition.
