Prints from "Theatrum Cometicum" by Stanislaw Lubieniecki - 1668

"Theatrum Cometicum" provides accounts of over 400 comets that were observed throughout history up until 1665. The book has 872 pages and more than 80 plates. I have three of the plates (numbers 41, 62 and 74). Plate 41 shows the path of the Comet of 1664 (C / 1664 W1) seen in December 1664. Plate 62 shows two prominent comets seen around the birth of Christ. Plate 74 shows several comets that were seen during the 16th century (1513, 1531, 1532, 1539, 1558, and 1596). The National Digital Library of Poland has a complete copy of "Theatrum Cometicum" available online. Digital Copy of Theatrum Cometicum
