This matching pair shows the predicted path of a solar eclipse on July 25, 1748 based on calculations by Leonhard Euler, a renowned mathematician and astronomer. The first sheet includes three hemisphere projections depicting the locations of the penumbra, or shadows caused by the eclipse, during three different time periods.

Geographically the hemispheres are fairly rudimentary, with only major rivers and place names identified. In North America the South is labeled Florida Louisiana and the Pacific Northwest is labeled Nova Albion.

The second sheet gives a more detailed view of the passage of the eclipse through Europe, surrounded by four figures of the sun and moon that identify the optimal viewing of the eclipse in Berlin, Nuremburg, St. Petersburg, and Rome. Created by George Moritz Lowitz.
The first sheet was engraved by Ruprecht Adam Schneider and the second sheet was engraved by S. Dorn. A rare pair of maps.

Doppelmayr was an astronomer of high repute. He was born at Nuremberg in 1671 and was educated at Halle University.
He was a professor of mathematics in his native city for nearly fifty years, and for some time made a specialty of lunar observations' (Brown, Astronomical Atlases, Maps and Charts p. 51).
His reputation was such as to gain him memberships in the Academia Caesarea Leopoldina, the academies of Berlin and St. Petersburg, and the Royal Society of London ... His major work is the Atlas Novus Coelestis ...
Besides star charts and a selenographic map, Doppelmayr's Atlas includes diagrams illustrating the planetary systems of Copernicus, Tycho, and Riccioli, the elliptic theories of Kepler, Boulliau, Seth Ward, and Mercator, the lunar theories of Tycho, Horrocks, and Newton and Halley's cometary theory.
The positions of the stars on the maps are correct for the year 1730.
