Add To Cart

A profusion of diagrams which in one way or another depict the universe as some person viewed it during the renaissance. Although widely different, they are alike in displaying the world as a rational arrangement of disparate parts. All of the images come from books which were printed before 1700, most from books which are housed in the Huntington Library. Each image is explained in rich detail. many disciplines are represented: astronomy, theology, alchemy, magic, mythology. mathematics, music, and more.
