About this Item: 1639. Ulm: Johann Gorlini, 1639. Coloured, with gold highlights. 285 x 380mm. The constellation of Eridanus (Ancient Greek name fhe or Po River), engraved by Alexander Mair for Bayer's 'Uranometria', a star atlas that shaped the way the heavens would be perceived for more than two centuries. Johann Bayer (1572-1625), an Augsburg lawyer, was an amateur astronomer in the years just prior to the invention of the telescope. His most important innovation was a new system of identifying stars by Greek and Roman letters, known today as the Bayer designation. His 'Uranometria' ('Measuring the Sky'), first published 1603, was the first celestial atlas to contain a chart of the stars in the Southern Hemisphere. WARNER: Bayer 1. Seller Inventory # 14611

About this Item: Artist: Bayer Johann ca ; issued in: Augsburg; date: ca1603, 1603. - technic: Copper print; - colorit: gouache; - condition: Perfect condition; - size (in cm): 27,5 x 37,5; - description: Representation of the northern hemisphere of the milky way. The term Milky Way is a translation of the Latin via lactea. From Earth, the Milky Way appears as a band because its disk-shaped structure is viewed from within. Galileo Galilei first resolved the band of light into individual stars with his telescope in 1610.; - vita of the artist: Johann Bayer ( 1572- 1625 ) was a German lawyer and uranographer (celestial cartographer). Bayer had several interests outside his work, including archaeology and mathematics. However, he is primarily known for his work in astronomy; particularly for his work on determining the positions of objects on the celestial sphere. He remained unmarried and died in 1625. Bayer is most famous for his star atlas Uranometria Omnium Asterismorum ("Uranometry of all the asterisms"), which was first published in 1603 in Augsburg and dedicated to two prominent local citizens. This was the first atlas to cover the entire celestial sphere. It was based upon the work of Tycho Brahe and may have borrowed from Alessandro Piccolomini's 1540 star atlas, De le stelle fisse ("Of the fixed stars"), although Bayer included an additional 1,000 stars. The Uranometria introduced a new system of star designation which has become known as the Bayer designation Bayer's atlas included twelve new constellations invented a few years earlier to fill in the far south of the night sky, which was unknown to ancient Greece and Rome.

Legend and Mythology: The Ancient Greeks called Triangulum Deltoton, as the constellation resembled an upper-case Greek letter delta. Eratosthenes linked it with the Nile Delta, while the Roman writer Hyginus associated it with the triangular island of Sicily, formerly known as Trinacria due to its shape. It was also called Sicilia, because the Romans believed Ceres, patron goddess of Sicily, begged Jupiter to place the island in the heavens. Greek astronomers such as Hipparchos and Ptolemy called it Trigonon, and later, it was Romanized as Trigonum. Later, the 17th-century German celestial cartographer Johann Bayer called the constellation Triplicitas and Orbis terrarum tripertitus, for the three regions Europe, Asia, and Africa. Triangulus Septentrionalis was a name used to distinguish it from Triangulum Australe, the Southern Triangle.; - vita of the artist: Johann Bayer ( 1572- 1625 ) was a German lawyer and uranographer (celestial cartographer).

About this Item: Artist: Bayer Johann ca ; issued in: Augsburg; date: ca1603, 1603. - technic: Copper print; - colorit: gouache; - condition: Very good; - size (in cm): 28 x 38; - description: Representation of the constellation Octant, it is circumpolar to the South Celestial Pole, it can be seen throughout the entire Southern Hemisphere. Legend and Mythology: Octans was one of 14 constellations created by Nicolas Louis de Lacaille during his expedition to the Cape of Good Hope. It was part of his catalogue of the southern sky, the Coelum Australe Stelliferum, which was published posthumously in 1763. In Europe, it became more widely known as Octans Hadleianus, in honor of English mathematician John Hadley, who invented the octant in 1730. There is no real mythology related to Octans, partially due to its faintness and relative recentness, but mostly because of its extreme southerly latitude.; - vita of the artist: Johann Bayer ( 1572- 1625 ) was a German lawyer and uranographer (celestial cartographer). Bayer had several interests outside his work, including archaeology and mathematics. However, he is primarily known for his work in astronomy; particularly for his work on determining the positions of objects on the celestial sphere. He remained unmarried and died in 1625.
