¤ Separately issued. Gerard Mercator's great world map of 1569 was condensed into double hemispherical form by his son Rumold. It first appeared in 1587 and was incorporated into his long-lived and influential Atlas from 1595 to 1602. A smaller version of Gerard Mercator's (the Elder) large double-hemisphere map, with some changes- it is the original map that was used in the early Mercator's full folio atlases. Without text on the reverse. Mercator was the first to make a distinction between "North America" and "South America". The engraving is a model of clarity and neatness, with typical cursive flourishes to the lettering of the sea names. Surrounding the hemispheres is a strapwork border; between them at the top is an armillary sphere and at the bottom an elaborate compass rose. - Shirley, World, 157

¤ Double hemisphere world map, from an unusual perspective. Paris is located at the centre of the hemisphere, so that Europe, Asia, Africa, North America and most of South America appear together: the left sphere contains Patagonia, Australia and the East Indian Islands. The two halves are named Hemisphere Maritime and Hemisphere Terrestre.
Australia and New Zealand are only shown partially and the erroneous 'Mer de L'Ouest' appears in northwest America, with a large 'I. Nouvelle' just south of the Bering Straits. Jesso, north of Japan, is part of mainland Asia.
The map was prepared by the Venetian cartographer and publisher François (Père) Santini and first published in Santini's 'Atlas Universel dresse sur les meuilleures cartes modernes 1776.'
Santini collaborated with Janvier and gives credit to him on most of his maps. The atlas is effectively an Italian copy of the Robert de Vaugondy 'Atlas Universel'.
In 1784 Santini sold the plates to M. Remondini, whose name appears on this particular example. ¤

¤ Map of the world presented in two northern and southern hemispheres. From Sidney E. Morse's: System of Geography for the use of schools , published by Harper and brothers, 329 Pearl Street, New York.
An 150 years old map with accompanying questions and exerciser relating to the map. Descriptive text on both pages on New York.
The map is an early example of cerography, or wax engraving. Sidney Morse and Samuel Breese invented cerography, which they began using in 1839. Morse tried to keep the process secret, but it became widely used in mapmaking, especially after Rand, McNally used wax engraving in 1872. Wax engraving remained an important map printing technique until the mid-twentieth century. Unlike engraving or lithography, which demanded the laborious drawing of a negative image, cerography allowed the image to be drawn directly the positive image is drawn onto a wax-covered plate that is then used as a mold from which a master printing plate is cast by an electroplating process. Images could be easily cut into the soft wax layer using very little pressure. See Woodward, David, The All-American Map: Wax Engraving and Its Influence on Cartography (Chicago, 1977).

¤ Beautiful et decorative celestial planisphere with a pasted volvelle. The chart shows the stars visible from 52 degrees latitude in a polar equidistant projection. The volvelle has been meticously cut and is pasted-on the planisphere. The volvelle includes the polar circle, named "Circulus Articus", both tropics named ‘Tropicus Capricorni’ and ‘Tropicus Cancri’.
Also including "Solstiti Hyber Colurus" (winter) and "Solstitior Solsti Aesti" (summer) solstice. A solstice is an astronomical event that occurs twice each year as the Sun reaches its highest or lowest excursion relative to the celestial equator on the celestial sphere.
Also the two equinoxes every year – in September and March – when the sun shines directly on the equator and the length of day and night is nearly equal are named.

The solstices, together with the equinoxes, are connected with the seasons. In many cultures the solstices mark either the beginning or the midpoint of winter and summer. Or rete to indicate the part of the sky visible at a particular moment.

The circular border around the sky divided in 360°.

¤ The very rare first edition, first state of this spectacular star chart showing the constellation of the southern hemisphere superimposed upon a globe depicting America with California as an island with a rounded coastline, and with many place names: P. San Francisco Draco, Pd.Carinda, S.Martin, S.Clement, I.de Paxaros, I.de Seintas and C.S.Lucas.
The first state is extremely rare, and has no plate number in the lower right corner. Later editions are subsequently printed in 1661, 1666, 1708.

The intent of the design was to display the constellations that would be visible from the areas of the earth illustrated on the map.
The decorative border includes two title cartouches supported by trumpeting angels. In the lower corners scenes from classical mythology with the figures of Atlas and Hercules supporting the globe.
This particular first edition has no page numbering in the lower right corner. Very rare.

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. ¤ McLaughlin, California, C-1.
