A handsome large chart that explains the different theories of the solar system according to Copernicus, Tycho Brahe, and Ptolemy. There are numerous engravings of spheres, globes, and diagrams of movements of the planets, including the moon and a solar eclipse. Several tables with French text explain the theories.
A nice impression on a sturdy sheet with a couple of small holes in the side margins, away from the map image.
