Superbement ornée de chérubins et de sphères armillaires. Cellarius (version latinisée du patronyme allemand Kellner) a vécu et travaillé essentiellement aux Pays-Bas.Il fut recteur d’un collège à Hoorne, au nord du pays. L’ouvrage est une compilation de l’information astronomique de l’époque, comprenant des diagrammes sur les systèmes du monde et des cartes célestes. Le volume contient également beaucoup de texte, et inclut quelques-unes des plus spectaculaires illustrations de l’histoire de l’astronomie. Riche en symboles, l’atlas de Cellarius met en scène des représentations de figures mythologiques, des portraits d’astronomes et de personnages historiques qui embellissent les cartes techniques.
A chart showing the eastern hemisphere, including north eastern coast of Australia with, superimposed, climatic zones and planetary details. Surround by most decorative scrollwork and cherubs.
Andreas Cellarius (active from 1656-1702), Dutch mathematician and geographer, rector of the Latin School at Hoorn. He may have been of German or Polish origin, with the name of Keller or Kellner. Cellarius adopted the system of Julius Schiller who renamed all constellations known at that time and sketched them again in order to fit the sky into a system of Christian symbolism. In Cellarius' "Atlas Coelestis" Schiller's system has been elaborated further. In fact, Schiller became more widely known by Cellarius' atlas than by his own work. From: Atlas Coelestis seu Harmonia Macrocosmica. Peter Schenk and Gerard Valk reissued the copperplates of the original Cellarius atlas in 1708. These plates, identified by the addition of the new publisher's imprint on the title banner.

¤ A very rare publicity leaflet for atlases published by Justus Perthes in 1852. This leaflet is very valuable as it gives in detail the different atlasses published in 1852 other than the well-known Stieler Atlas.
Johan Georg Justus Perthes was a German publisher and founder of the firm that bears his name (Justus Perthes).
He was born in Rudolstadt. In 1785 he founded the Justus Perthes publishing firm in Gotha. In this, he was joined in 1814 by his son Wilhelm Perthes (1793-1853), who had been in the establishment of Justus's nephew, Friedrich Christoph Perthes, at Hamburg. On Justus's death, Wilhelm took over the firm and laid the foundation of the geographical branch of the business, for which it is chiefly famous, by publishing the Hand-atlas from 1817-1823 of Adolf Stieler (1775-1836).
Wilhelm Perthes engaged the collaboration of the most eminent German geographers of the time, including Stieler, Heinrich Berghaus (1797-1884), Christian Gottlieb Reichard (1758-1837), who was associated with Stieler in the compilation of the atlas, Karl Spruner (1803-1892), and Emil von Sydow (1812-1873).
The business passed to his son Bernard Wilhelm Perthes (1821 - 1857), who was associated with August Petermann (under whose direction the well-known perodical Petermanns Mitteilungen was founded) and Bruno Hassenstein (1839-1902); and subsequently (1857) to his son Bernard.
In 1863 the firm first issued the Almanach de Gotha, a statistical, historical and genealogical annual (in French) of the various countries of the world; and in 1866 the elaborate Geographisches Jahrbuch was produced under the editorship of Ernst Behm (1830-1884), on whose death it was continued under that of Professor Hermann Wagner.

¤ Carte d'Europe satirique pour l'année 1870 accompagnée d'un texte descriptif en bas de planche : L’ANGLETERRE, isolée, peste de rage et en oublie Presque L’IRLANDE qu’elle tient en laisse. L’ESPAGNE fume, appuyée sur le PORTUGAL. La FRANCE repousse les envahissements de la PRUSSE, qui avance une main sur la HOLLANDE l’autre sur L’AUTRICHE. L’ITALIE, aussi, dit à Bismarck: Ote donc tes pieds de là. LA CORSE et la SARDAIGNE. . . un vrai Gavroche qui rit de tout. Le DANEMARCK, qui a perdu ses jambes dans le HOLSTEIN, espère les reprendre. La TURQUIE d’EUROPE baille et s’éveille. La TURQUIE d’ASIE aspire la fumée de son narguilhé. La SUÈDE fait des bonds de panthère. Et la RUSSIE ressemble à un croquemitaine qui voudrait remplir sa hotte.
