Amsterdam: Schenk and Valk, 1708. Very good, minimal foxing, early color (with more recent enhancement) copperplate from this 1708 (original version published in 1660 by Jansson) Schenk/Valk issue of (Andreas Cellarius') "Harmonia Macrocosmica Seu Atlas Universalis Et Novus." The striking image measures 43 x 52 cm on a sheet 51 x 60 cm. Numerous cherubim surrond the circular view, as does an outer circle of a number of signs of the zodiac. There are a couple of pinhole defects, repaired verso, with no significant loss of imate. Ref: Koeman, Atlantes Neerlandici, Cel.3..
