Russian Celestial Map 1909
This 1909 Russian celestial map depicts the constellations and the Milky Way as seen from both the Northern and the Southern hemispheres. A comparative chart shows the size of the planets in relation to the sun. More cosmological information are presented, such as the phases of the moon, the explanation of the seasons, and the orbits of various celestial objects. It's worth noting that the text is written in the old Cyrillic alphabet of prior 1918. This map is one of my favorite, not only for its subject matter and originality, but for its strikingly beautiful vintage colors.
Our prints of vintage maps come in 3 sizes on archival enhanced matte photo paper. They are made to fit into the standard sizes listed (see sample photo for sizes above) each with a proportional white border for matting.
