Book Description As enchanting to browse through as a rare, old manuscript, this text contains more than 300 rare engravings and woodcut illustrations of astrological and astronomical subjects from around the world. Striking depictions of planets, the Milky Way, signs of the zodiac, comets, meteors, and other phenomena accompany a treasure trove of stories, lore, and mythical explanations of the nature and origin of astronomical phenomena. A multipurpose reference for artists and designers; an absorbing glimpse of primitive astronomy for scientists and other interested readers.
