Special Collections After Hours: History of the Stars

Color woodcut depicting the movements and properties of Mercury, from Johannes de Sacro Bosco (ca. 1195 – ca.1256). "Sphaera mundi." Add: Gerardus Cremonensis: "Theorica planetarum." Venice: Franciscus Renner, de Heilbronn, 1478.
 

Come see highlights from the Library's extraordinary collection of manuscripts and early printed books describing the early history of astrology and astronomy. These holdings range from ancient papyri to richly illustrated books that made possible the scientific revolution in Europe in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, including first editions of the works of Copernicus, Galileo, and Kepler. One of the most impressive highlights of the collection is a one-page manuscript where Galileo himself recorded his observations of the moons of Jupiter for the very first time.
