click here to view a large version in a separate window

A distinctive woodblock engraved map of the Zodiac signs where the printing is reversed - white on black . This unusual woodblock presentation appears to its best effect on celestial, as opposed to terrestrial maps, where the stars appear bright against the blackness of the background. On this plate Taurus is clearly emphasised with Orion and the recently described, but now unused term “Telescopium Herscelii” marked. The map was published in London in 1832 in William Pinnock's "The Guide To Knowledge". They were engraved by Joshua Archer and Sidney Hall and appeared in many editions and re-issues of "The Guide To Knowledge" until 1863. The map is numbered LXXXII at upper left and has the price of one penny at upper right. The "Guide" was a serialised part work and was relatively inexpensive, thus accessible to many.
