Single Click to Enlarge/Reduce
Celestial map From the Astronomischer Bilder Atlas, Himmels Karte mit den Sternen welche wahrend des ganzen Jahres sichtbar sind, from Wilhelm Nitzschke, Stuttgart, 1851. "Hold To Light" maps as this have cut outs with filmy paper behind them so that when you hold them to the light, the stars shine. Both decorative and informative, these types of maps can be custom framed by us with glass on both sides for the light to shine through them. Very good overall antique condition, with some light foxing. Approx. 11.5 x 9.25 inches to the paper edges.
