Hand colored etching on layered paper board. Colorful astronomical chart with a depiction of the stars and constellations. Figures include Andromeda chained to the rock, the triangles, and the sword, feather and laurel branches (or maybe a scroll) for Gloria Frederici, a constellation created by Johann Ellert Bode in 1787 to honor Frederick the Great (Frederick II), the late king of Prussia. Gloria Frederici is no longer recognized as a constellation.
