A fascinating and rare chart illustrating the path of the solar eclipse of February 18, 1737. The chart was created by astronomer Thomas Wright and published by John Senex, then one of the most notable publishers of astronomical materials.
The chart shows the beginning, middle and end of the total solar eclipse, and what it would look like to the residents of various cities in Europe. For example, it was a full eclipse in Edinburgh, but only a partial eclipse in Madrid - and almost full in Amsterdam.
If you have time, dive into the detailed images and see how much detail is on this chart. It's a fascinating piece.
This ancient monochrome solar chart looks great at all sizes: 12x16 inches (31x41cm), 18x24 inches (45.5x61cm) and 24x30 inches (61x76cm), but it looks even better when printed large.
I can create beautiful, large prints of this chart up to 100 inches (254cm) wide. Please get in touch if you're looking for larger, customised or different framing options.
The model in the listing images is holding the 20x16 inch (51x40.5cm) version of this chart.
Please note, the unframed 24x30 inch map has white edges around the map. These edges can help you with framing, or if you don’t need them, they are very easy to snip off with scissors. All other maps, including the framed maps, look exactly like the listing images.
This would make a wonderful birthday, Christmas, work leaving or housewarming gift for someone who is fascinated by the night sky, or who simply loves interesting and historical charts.
This chart is available as a giclée print on acid free archival matte paper, or you can buy it framed. The frame is a nice, simple black frame that suits most aesthetics. Please get in touch if you'd like a different frame colour or material. My frames are glazed with super-clear museum-grade acrylic (perspex/acrylite), which is significantly less reflective than glass, safer, and will always arrive in perfect condition.

I use a unique process to restore my maps that is massively time consuming and labour intensive. Hunting down the original maps can take months. I use state of the art and eye-wateringly expensive technology to scan and restore the maps. As a result, I guarantee my maps are a cut above the rest - that's why I can offer a no-quibble refund.
Almost all of my maps look amazing at large sizes (200cm, 6.5ft+) and I can frame and deliver them to you as well, via special oversized courier. Contact me to discuss your specific needs.
