Flammarion's Geographic Planisphere of Mars - 1881 Poster
This 26 inch wide by 16 inch high (overall) Mars poster features an 1891 chart of the Martian Eastern and Western Hemispheres that was based on the observations made by French astronomer Camille Flammarion. The map – the Dutch version – reflects a very Earth like Mars with seas and oceans amid the Martian continents.
Published here the chart had been reformatted with a rich red Victorian background and border that is fitting with the map’s era and subject matter. An outstanding example of early astronomical art and perfect for any Steampunk themed study or library wall.
