Systema Mundi Tychonicum : Secundum celeberrimorum Astronomorum Tychonis de Brahe et Io. Baptistae Riccioli S.I. Hypotheses concinnatum ; Cum Privilegio Sac. Caes. Maiestatis Johann Gabriel Doppelmayr; Johann Baptist Homann.
Norimbergae, 1742. Hand color. 57,2 x 48 cm. Latin. From Atlas Cosmographicus Maior, sistens Mundum Universum,15. Striking model of the solar system according to the theories of Tycho Brahe and Giovanni Battista Riccioli. The main diagram shows Brahe's theory that the sun revolves around the earth and the other planets revolve around the sun. In the corners are smaller diagrams showing alternative theories for the movement and size of celestial bodies. The main diagram is surmounted by Apollo driving his chariot across the sky and surrounded by constellations of the zodiac. The chart was drawn by the mathematician J.G. Dopelmayr and published by the Homann publishing firm. Doppelmayr wrote on astronomy, geography, cartography, spherical trigonometry, sundials and mathematical instruments. He collaborated with the cartographer Johann Baptista Homann (1664-1724), a former Dominican monk from Oberkammlach in Schwabia who in 1688 had settled in Nuremberg and became a map engraver for the publishing firms of Jacob von Sandrart and David Funck. This superb celestial chart depicts the Tycho Brahe model of the Solar System surrounded with the signs of the Zodiac. Across the chart, Apollo with his entourage drives his sun chariot through the sky. Portraits of Tycho Brahe and Riccioli are in the upper portion of the chart with diagrams of their planetary systems delineated in each corner. The map is further embellished with banks of clouds containing putti using scientific instruments. Johann Gabriel Doppelmayr was a professor of mathematics at the Aegidien Gymnasium in Nuremberg.
