Title : Sterre kaert of hemels pleyn, waer door men kan wete hoe laet dat het is over de gehele aertkloot, op alle meridiane en polus hoogte . . ..
Map maker : ELWE, J.B..
Date : Amsterdam, 1684-1792.
Size : 18.4 x 22.7 inches. / 46.7 x 57.6 cm.
Colouring : Orig. col. with later col. addition.

Description :A most attractive Mercator style projection of the entire night sky showing all the heavenly bodies and with panels of astrological notations below.
Prepared by Remmet Teunisse Backer. It incorporates the twelve constellations that Dutch explorers added to the canon of constellations in the South Hemisphere in the late 16th century. The twelve new constellations were: the Chameleon, the Phoenix, the Toucan, Grus (the crane), Indus (Indian warrior with spear), Hydrus, Pavo, Paradisea, Triangulum, Musca (the fly), Volans (a flying fish) and Dorado (the goldfish).
Notice that the figures are mirror imaged. This is because the chart is drawn as if looking towards the Earth from beyond the stars, rather than drawn from the Earth looking out.

The plate has a long and convoluted history: originally published c.1684 by Johannes van Keulen, it was subsequent republished by de Ram (whose imprint is imperfectly erased outside the printed border at bottom te bekoomen te Amsterdam : by Joannes de Ram, Caertverkooper op den Dam.), de la Feuille (who had married de Ram's widow), Ottens and finally this edition by Elwe. Engraved by J.de Broen.
