I have a few lithographs remaining from several years ago, when a limited number were produced for Canada's National Museum of Science and Technology.

Northern and Southern hemispheres and planetary engravings in intricate detail by G. de Rossi of Rome. Planisfero Del Globo Celeste Artico … Antartico, 1687. 21 ¾ x 16 ½ (25" x 19" with border). From Rossi's Mercurio Geografico. Finely engraved by Mariotti, very decorative double hemisphere celestial map. This elegantly engraved chart is based on the work of the Italian astronomer Francesco Brunacci (1640-1703), and has a descriptive panel of text below (in Italian) explaining the celestial systems.

From a limited edition Copper Plate, 1978. Copper Plate destroyed.

The map is dated and produced on fine parchment paper. $5 plus $5 shipping in heavy cardboard tube.
