Published at a time of significant gains in astronomical science, this stunning depiction of the Solar System and what was understood about it in the late nineteenth century bears a unique aesthetic and distinctive style which immediately transports the viewer back in time. Maps of the cosmos, and Lunar maps, were valued at the time for maritime navigation and educational purposes. Produced by A&C Black, this detailed illustration includes seasonal data and a mariner’s compass. A&C Black has been [publishing maps since 1807, and their depictions are among the most famous in history for their accuracy and distinctive aesthetic. Their atlases were prized during the nineteenth century for their thorough information, and they published the Encyclopedia Brittanica from 1827 to 1903.
Astronomical theory was being developed rapidly at the end of the nineteenth century and advances in telescopic technology-fueled these advances. Ship captains and sailors had long used the solar system to guide them across the globe. By the late nineteenth century, much of this information had been legitimized by astronomers, both professional and amateur. In 1872 American Astronomer Henry Draper produced the first photograph of a star, which allowed astronomers to use spectroscopy to understand stars better.
Astronomy and studying the solar system dates back to antiquity and is the oldest natural science, as the night sky has long captured cultures' imagination and curiosity. The late nineteenth century was no different, and this elegant depiction of the solar system is an authentic piece of cartographical history.
