Celestial Images: Antiquarian Astronomical Charts and Maps from the Mendillo Collection: Exhibition Catalogue
Patricia M. Burnham (au); Deborah Jean Warner (au); Samuel Y. Edgerton (au)
Here, Mendillo explains how his fascination with astronomy, history, and visualization came together when another prof. noticed charts by Cellarius hanging on his office wall and pointed to gargoyle-like faces peering out from the borders around an image of Ptolemy’s cosmology. This exhibition was born that afternoon, with that image, now one of 93 images in the collection on display. Most of these maps and charts came from antiquarian book and map shops. Contents: Preface by Stacey McCarroll; Intro. by Michael Mendillo; Celestial Images: An Overview, by Patricia Burnham; Star Charts: Their Lore and Meaning, by Deborah Warner; and The Function of Artistic Form in the Study of the Stars, by Samuel Edgerton. Color plates. Oversize.
