Anonymus. Two manuscript charts on lunar astronomy with mounted and movable parts of the moon`s passage through the Pleiades at New Year`s Eve, 1767, and another from the same hand of the partial lunar eclipse on January, 4th 1768, both as seen from Leipzig. Obviously manufactured during the observations in Leipzig, Saxony. Black ink on recto and verso of two strong cardboards. Measurements: 23 x 22 cm (partial lunar eclipse) and 20,5 x 27 cm (moon`s passage through the Pleiades). Corners minorily bumped, lightly browned in places, but all together very well preserved especially for items that include movable parts for demonstrational purposes. 2.950,00 EUR
A very unusual set of manuscript lunar charts, obviously drawn during the celestial occurences described and precisely measured on them. Unfortunately, they are unsigned and the authorship therefore remains unclear. The design of the charts, however, talks in favour of the author having been in a position enabling him to make use of elaborate astronomical instruments, and would that most probably not be the case if he was a privateer instead of a person, who by profession was connected to a university or an observatory: The charts bear normal captions as well as some which are mirror-inverted, clearly pointing towards that they had been manufactured (and later used for presentation) by the combination of an astronomical telescope and a projection instrument. The lunar motion shown on the front side of each one of the charts could so repeatedly be demonstrated for educational purposes and at the same time be compared with the time scales on the backside, simply by placing the charts between the viewer and a mirror, with the front side of the charts facing the mirror.
