An astronomy enthusiast’s must-have, a rare and unique print from the 1855 publication of Atlas of Astronomy by Alexander Keith Johnston showing the comparative sizes of the planets. From the beautiful rings of Saturn to the massive hulk of Jupiter, to the lead-melting temperature on Venus, each planet in the solar system is represented on this chart. The author hoped to inspire scientists to get interested in an emerging field of astronomy.
In true vintage map fashion, this high-quality giclee print has all the information an old map should have. The blue background makes the gray and beige planets stand out. This will be a perfect present for a student of any age, and just the right thing to adorn a dorm room.
