Illustrating the phaenomena : celestial cartography in antiquity and the Middle Ages by Elly Dekker( )

16 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 891 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The introduction of the moving sphere as a model for understanding the celestial phenomena caused a great breakthrough in scientific thinking about the structure of the world. It provided the momentum for making celestial globes and mapping the stars. Celestial globes were produced first by Greek astronomers, and soon became greatly appreciated in antiquity as decorative objets. The design and construction of the globe varied greatly as it passed through the Arabic and medieval European cultures. It was the starting point for the design of many maps in antiquity and later in the Middle Ages, serving to illustrate books such as Aratus's Phaenomena. In the early fifteenth century scientific celestial maps were constructed in their own right, independent of globes. In this book all extant celestial maps and globes made before 1500 are described and analysed in detail. This prestigious study will appeal to academic historians of science and astronomy, and art historians alike. -- from back cover
