Colouring : Both original and later colouring.

Description :An uncommon, extremely decorative chart of the surface of the moon divided in hemispheres, from the famous "Atlas Coelestis" of Johann Gabriel Doppelmayr.
Doppelmayer wanted to illustrate the lunar mapping of Johannes Hevelius (left) and Giovanni Battista Riccioli (right).

The left hand lunar map, composed by Hevelius, is a considered a foundational map in the science of lunar cartography. The moon is presented as it can never be seen from Earth, at a greater than 360 degrees and with all visible features given equal weight. The chart shown names like; 'Asia Minor,' 'Persia,' 'Sicilia,, etc.

The Riccioli map, on the right, is more properly known as the Riccioli-Grimaldi map, for fellow Jesuit Francesco Grimaldi with whom Riccioli composed the chart. Well-known lunar features named by Riccioli include the Sea of Tranquility where Apollo 11 landed and where Neil Armstrong became the first human to set foot on the moon's surface.

Johann Baptist Homann (1663-1724) was an engraver and map seller, geographer to the Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire, and a member of the Prussian Royal Academy of Science.
Condition : Several repairs among them are tears and the left margins enlarged through old paper (outside printed area). Reinforced with Japanese paper.
Enhanced with gold. Paper slightly age toned.
