These two charts are high-quality facsimiles of two pages of The Leiden Aratea, produced in Lucerne in the 1980s. You can Google "Leiden Aratea" for the long and interesting history of this book which may have been produced for Charlemagne. The two sample charts -- Perseus and Taurus -- would be of interest to a collector with an interest in the history of astronomical cartography. (Sorry -- facsimiles only -- the originals are not available.) They are 7.75 x 9 inches and come with a 36-page illustrated booklet in English published by the Getty Museum. Price includes shipping; add $3 if PayPal.
