this german lithograph depicts a greyish blue sky map of the stars of the northern hemisphere with the milky way stretching across the expanse

it comes from a 19th century german lexikon and measure 9.5 x 12"

the starry details and constellations are magnificent and difficult to capture in a scan.

a copy of the title page with the date, publisher and engraver's information will be included with the print

~ all prints come in a new clear archival envelope - with an 18th century antique paper wrapping - ready for gifting or keeping!

~ shipping charges include full insurance against loss & damage ~

~ i use recycled materials in my packaging. please let me know if you want new materials used to ship your particular package ~

~ please look at scan & photos closely for any minor aging or discoloration on the print ~ as it is over 100 years old!

PLEASE NOTE: this print is a double page 'centerfold' ~ meaning it has a clean crease down the middle from where is was folded inside the book. to some this maybe a distracting nuance. to others it is an unavoidable triviality in the mission to display a more important illustration in a smaller format. ~ [think of a Playboy centerfold]

i add this comment due to numerous debates over the framing potential of a double page creased print. your personal aesthetics should guide you.

a 100% refund including return shipping is available if you find the crease objectionable. but remember it is the centerfold images that are the more important images from the book!
