Description :Sterre Kaert of Hemels Pleyn, waerdoor men kan wete hoe laet dat het is over de gehele aertkloot, op alle meridiane en polus hoogte, en, op wat lengte en brete de voorsz sterre staen, bezuyde en benoorde de linić ćquinoctiael. Amsterdam, Jan Barend Elwe, [1792] (first engraved 1684). Large engraved rectangular star chart (sky image 28.5 x 56.5, with tables, tekst and borders 47 x 58 cm) covering both the northern and the southern hemispheres, with about 64 constellation figures, the author's information and privilege on drapery held by 3 putti with the coats of arms of Holland, Friesland and Enkhuysen, 3 small compass roses, reticulated scales of latitude and longitude in the borders, Arctic and Antarctic circles, tropics of Cancer and Capricorn, reticulated equator and ecliptic. A curiosity is a set of superimposed lines and curves delineating 12 gore-like forms (though the chart's stars and constellation figures continue through the spaces between them) and a circle (59 degree radius) centered around the vernal equinox. Below the chart itself is an extensive table for calculating the time anywhere on earth. From Elwe's Atlas. The chart, including borders and table, coloured by a contemporary hand. A large and attractive celestial chart with pictorial constellations, originally engraved ca. 1684 as an instrument for calculating time.
Warner, Sky Explored, p. 11
Condition : Very good.
