Franz Ritter was a German mathematician and astronomer whose works are extremely rare. This beautiful engraving is a horological diagram remarkable for the elaborately engraved decorative border. At top is a large cartouche and at bottom is compass rose. A very rare and unusual cartographic curiosity.
Tiny bit of faint foxing, still very good with a crisp impression and lovely color. Close margins, as issued.
