Sphere and stand by Jean Baptiste Cattin zoom

Sphere and stand

Celestial clockwork globe. Astronomical details on the sphere include a magnitude table within a cartouche, below Crater. The Milky Way is labelled, and 14 stars and four star groups are named. The 48 Ptolemaic constellations and four non-Ptolemaic constellations are drawn. One southern constellation is drawn with those of Plancius. Outhier was sufficiently pleased with his design of mechanical globe, constructed for him by Cattin, that he decided to present it to the Academie Royale des Sciences, Paris, in 1727. This first globe is described and illustrated in a French publication dated 1735.
