From: A Cellarius, Harmonia Macrocosmica sea Atlas Coelestis. Johannes Janssonius, 1660. (Van der Krogt 1, 801A)

In 1660, Joannes Janssonius added a celestial atlas to his Atlas Major, the beautiful Harmonia Macrocosmica by Andreas Cellarius. In 1661 the atlas was republished as a separate publication. The plates of the Harmonia Macrocosmica were reprinted (without the Latin commentary) in 1708 by the Amsterdam publishers Valk and Schenk.
