Original, beautifully detailed antique map showing the star constellations of the southern hemisphere, printed in 1896.

A star chart is a map of the night sky. Astronomers divide these into grids to easily use them. They are used to identify and locate astronomical objects such as stars, constellations and galaxies. They have been used for human navigation since time immemorial. A planisphere is a type of star chart. Note that a star chart differs from an astronomical catalog which is a listing or tabulation of astronomical objects for a particular purpose.

The size of the print (in inches): 12" x 9,6" (30,5 x 24,5 cm)

The print is in good condition and the paper shows its age with a creamy patina, also has light staining which can be perfectly covered when matted.

Concerning the age of the paper - cca. 110 years - some spots can be occured on the margin and the reverse side, but these do not effect the quality of the print itself as it can be seen on the scan.

Please note, that by antique prints due to their age some imperfections are to be expected.
