A seventeenth century picture from Nürnberg

During my daily rounds on Facebook I stumbled across this wonderful seventeenth century frontispiece from a book published in Nürnberg and thought it was so nice that I would share it here. I don’t really know who all the gentlemen sitting at the table are but that is the city of Nürnberg in the background.


I really dig the table leg.

This is the title page of the book: Jacobi Bartschii … Planisphærium stellatum; seu, Vice-globus coelestis in piano delineatus (Nuremberg 1661)


You can read it or even download it here
