Title : Planisphere celeste Septentrional. . . [together with] Planisphere celeste Meridinale. . ..
Map maker : DE FER,N. / DESNOS,S..
Date : Paris, 1775.
Size : 18.3 x 18.1 inches. / 46.5 x 46.1 cm.
Colouring : Coloured.

Description :A pair of celestial charts depicting the constellations of the Northern and Southern hemispheres. Designed by Gabriel Philllipe de la Hire (1640-1719). The center point of the two charts is what would be the center point of a hemisphere using the Ecliptic as its outer edge that would run through the zodiacal constellations. Superimposed upon that figure is the hemisphere whose center point is the North Star (or very near it) and a point corresponding in the Southern sky.
These juxtaposed hemispheres are displayed so that the idea is clearly communicated.
The constellations are beautifully engraved and handsomely coloured.
Nicolas de Fer was the son of a cartographer, and he enjoyed a long, prosperous career with Royal patronage. Dedicated to the Dauphin, the King's brother. De Fer later became Geographer to the King.
Engraved by Hendrick van Loon. This later issue with the imprint of De Fer's successor Louis-Charles Desnos.
This is a matching set of 2 celestial charts.




Condition : Marginal brown spots in the upper margin, not affecting printed area. Wide margins. Old horizontal foldings. Good condition.
