 Celestial Maps 

BRAUN, Friedrich. [A set of transparent star charts]
Himmels-Atlas in transparente Karten. Stuttgarte: Wilhelm Nitzschke, c.1856. Illustrated board portfolio, colour-printed chromolithographic star chart in four sections, total 600 x 490mm, 30 constellations plates on blue card, each 225 x 285mm, in gilt-lettered folio with 16pp. letterpress guide. A little wear to covers.
A celestial index map of the sky from the the North Pole to 40º south, and thirty constellation cards, all with the stars perforated and backed with coloured paper so they glow when they are held up to the light. The holes are different shapes and sizes to mimic the apparent magnitude of the stars. The series was designed to be educational, and the pamphlet is a technical guide to the solar system and the stars depicted on the cards.
