Taschen never seems to disapoint and this latest issue in their series of oversized classic texts is no exception. The Harmonia Macrocosmia is a lavish oversized book of 17th century celstial maps that are reproduced with stunning clarity and brilliance. This volume should appeal easily to anyone with an interest in astronomy, art or fine books.

There are many of us who just can't afford the time and money to get many Cellarius pieces for the home. This is the solution in a lovely, well printed and compiled edition of the book, from start to finish. It is large (slightly larger than the original). It would be perfect on a library table or similar. If you are interested illminated manuscripts, astronomy history, mythology, early scientific understanding of the heavens... then this is of great interest to you.

The book is extremely well crafted.

Perhaps the size of the print could've been a little larger, but I see it OK as it is. The written content is well-informed and easily accesible for non-experts. Paper is obviously of high quality as is the printing. Especially nice is the black suede and gold print detail on the side of the outside binding.

I purchased this book for two reasons: it covers an interesting topic and it is also a nice piece of decoration for a study room or library. The book is very elegant; you will not be dissapointed.

For collectors of antique art, this is a must. The book is huge and beautiful, and the artwork superb. These are glorious reproductions of paintings of the zodiac, solar system, and planets by Andreas Cellarius (1596-1665). The Plates show Cellarius' artwork in magnificent color and detail, and many show the work in close-up. An incredibly beautiful book and a rare treasure!

Introduction and explaining text in english, german, and french of the original in latin, by Dutch specialist of the history of astronomy at the University of Utrecht. with facsimile of the many illustrations in the original. Quality of the prints is so so, but the price is very reasonable.

No Brasil esse livro custa 800 reais. Dividem em 4 esse preço. Pela amazon.com paguei 4 vezes menos. Os livros da Taschen são sempre muito bem feitos e custam menos do que valem, mas as lojas tupiniquins insistem em jogar o preço nas estrelas. Quanto ao livro, é mais um da categoria "livro de ver" e "de enfeitar" e vale cada centavo investido. Desde que esses centavos não sejam os 800 cobrados no Brasil.
