Colorful astronomical chart showing the annual succession of seasons, from L'Hiver (winter) to Le Printemps (spring). A series of shaded representations of the earth, tilted on its axis, revolve within full meridian around a central radiant orange sun. The chart is from an elephant folio atlas of 60 double and single-page maps and charts including the world, Europe, etc.

Condition: Generally very good, with the usual light toning, wear, soft creases. Bright colors considered original, based on other extant examples.
