Genuine Antique Hand Colored Map

1778

Maker: Diderot.

Antique hand colored print showing elements of Astronomy, such as comets, the moon, and more, by Diderot from 1778. The device at bottom is a Ptolemaic Armillary, which is a model of objects in the sky (in the celestial sphere), consisting of a spherical framework of rings, centered on Earth, that represent lines of celestial longitude and latitude and other astronomically important features such as the ecliptic. The dating of the color is unknown. Very good overall antique condition. approx. 13 x 8.25 inches to the neatline. **SOLD**
