Scarce first issue. This spectacular celestial chart presents the constellations according to Christian symbolism. The view of the constellations is based on the work of the early 17th century astronomer,

Julius Schiller, who sought to replace the traditional pagan symbols with ones derived from Judeo-Christian sources. Schiller replaced the zodiacal constellations with the twelve apostles, the constellations north of the zodiac by figures from the New Testament and the constellations south of the zodiac by figures from the Old Testament.
