A in 1660 published hemisphere atlas Harmonia Macrocosmica with 29 splendid engravings, in which the constellations and the different world systems are shown.
In the atlas, portraits of the heliocentric scholars Aristarchus of Samos and Copernicus are in addition to the worldview confirmed by the Bible in the eyes of the conservative theologians, in which the sun revolves around the Earth in a perfect circle. The book could also be incorporated into Catholic libraries, for the Roman Catholic Church still stuck to the medieval and ancient planet spheres of Ptolomaeus.
The beautiful engravings were sold separately and often bound by collectors in a single binding. The Atlas of Cellarius is found in the libraries of the Vatican and Topkapi in Istanbul.
