Copernican (heliocentric/Sun-centred) system of the Universe, 1708 Featured Print

Copernican (heliocentric/Sun-centred) system of the Universe, 1708

Copernican (heliocentric/Sun-centred) system of the Universe, 1761. Illustration showing ecliptic and the orbit of the Earth and the planets and demonstrating the reason for the phenomenon of night and day. Prior to the work of the Polish astronomer Nicolaus Copernicus (1473-1543), the Earth was considered to be the stationary centre of the universe, a notion first advocated by the Egyptian astronomer Ptolemy. Copernicus pioneering work The Revolutions of Celestial Spheres, 1543, describes his idea of a Sun-centred universe, in which the Earth is merely one of the planets revolving around the Sun and rotating on its axis. From Harmonia Macrocsmica by Andreas Cellarius. (Amsterdam, 1708)

Ptolemaic cosmology, 1708 artwork

Ptolemaic cosmology. This artwork is from the 1708 edition of Harmonica Macrocosmica, a star atlas by the Dutch-German mathematician and cosmographer Andreas Cellarius (1596-1665). The artwork shows the geocentric worldview (one centred on the Earth) held by the 2nd-century Greek philosopher Ptolemy (lower right). Surrounding the Earth are spheres for the Moon, Mercury, Venus, the Sun, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn (all riding chariots). The zodiacal signs are on the rim of the circle. Astronomers and muses adorn the artwork's border. Harmonica Macrocosmica, first published in 1660, had 30 colour plates with accompanying Latin text. This edition was published in Amsterdam by Petrus Schenk (1660-1711) and Gerard Valk (1652-1726)
