Interesting sheet containing several engravings including a large celestial chart of the Southern sky showing the allegorical representations of the constellations. Also included are a depiction of a celestial globe, diagrams of the various solar system theories, and a chart showing how distance is measured according to the parallels.
Nicely colored with a bit of very faint discoloration, still very good.
