Rare decorative celestial map by Matthaus Seutter, published in Augsburg circa 1730. The map includes two maps of the Northern & Southern Skies. A diagram in the upper right corner showing the monthly orbit and illumination of the moon, while another in the upper left represents day and night on the earth with quotations from Genesis. Five additional diagrams along the bottom represent the monthly orbit and illumination of the moon, the different planetary hypotheses of Tycho Brahe, Corpernicus, Ptolemy, and the annual orbit of the sun and the seasons.
