Peter Apian, dragon from Astronomicum Caesareum, 1540

The Astronomicum Caesareum (Emperor's Astronomy) is a beautiful and elaborate Renaissance book, created by Peter Apian to calculate the position of the planets in the sky, the dates of Easter, and other auspicious astronomical dates. The impressive dragon featured on this card formed a volvelle - an interactive wheel diagram that could be spun to make these calculations.
