"Tabula Selenographica in qua Lunarium Macularum exacta Descriptio secundum
Nomenclaturam Praestissimorum Astronomorum tam Hevelii quam Riccioli...

Copper engraving map by Johann Baptist Homann in Nuerenberg, ca 1707 after
Johann Gabriel Doppelmayer ( 1671-1750).

The two maps showng the surface of the moon are from models by Johannes Hevelius
and Giovanni Battista Riccioli using their nomenclature.

Johannes Hevelius was the first to publish a treatise entirely about the moon. He founded the science
of selenography - the science of the moon. It is named after Selene, the godess of the moon.

This map has attractive hand coloring. Small repair on lower centerfold.
Tiny piece of lower right margin has been added. A few minor signs of age and use.

48.5 x 57 cm ( 19 x 22.4 ")
