Double-page spread of De Revolutionibus Orbium Coelestium (On the Revolutions of the Celestial Orbs, 1543), the book in which astronomer Nicolaus Copernicus (1473- 1543) overturned the prevailing notion that Earth was the centre of the Cosmos. Copernicus argued that the planets of the Solar System followed circular orbits around the Sun. The book was banned by the Church from 1616 to 1835 and is now considered the first of the Age of Science. Notes made by astronomer Erasmus Reinhold (1511-1553).

Page from Johannes Kepler's Astronomia Nova (New Astronomy, 1609). The page shows the comparison between the heliocentric Copernican system, the ancient, geocentric Ptolemaic system, and Tycho's compromise 'geo- heliocentric' system. Kepler later abandoned such comparisons because he (correctly) believed that only the heliocentric model, in which planets of the Solar System orbit the Sun, could offer a satisfactory explanation of celestial physics. This book was the most important volume by Kepler.

The Latin text gives the book's title, the name of the author, and a description of the contents. The artwork at bottom shows Fludd's theory of the microcosm and the macrocosm, with a human figure straddling the microcosm (the inner world), surrounded by the macrocosm (the outer world).

PHOTO: EAST NEWS/SCIENCE PHOTO LIBRARY Flyer for the 1769 transit of Venus. This flyer was printed to make amateur astronomers and the general public aware of the upcoming transit of Venus across the Sun. When Venus passes directly between the Earth and the Sun, it is seen as a small disc that obscures part of the Sun. This phenomenon is rare, as it occurs in pairs that are spaced by eight years and each pair then has over 100 years between them. Only seven transits of Venus have occurred since the invention of the telescope (in the years 1631, 1639, 1761, 1769, 1874, 1882 and 2004). The second transit in the 21st century is on 6th June 2012, after which the next one is not until 2117.

The text is in Latin. Originally published in 1600, this book is often regarded as the first great work of science to be published in England. The full title of the work is De Magnete, Magneticisque Corporibus, et de Magno Magnete Tellure (On the Magnet and Magnetic Bodies, and on That Great Magnet the Earth). The author's name (Guilielmo Gilberto) follows the title, along with a reference to him as a physician from London. The text also names Wolfgang Lochman, the publisher of this edition.

Figures representing the winds surround a central globe illuminated by the Sun (upper left) and the Moon (upper right). At top centre, a hand emerges from heavenly fires, supporting the Earth from a chain with a ball, a serpent and bird wings, accompanied by a Latin motto. At lower left and right, allegorical figures represent cartography and astronomy. The Latin text refers to the author, the Jesuits, and the book's title. Across bottom, the Amsterdam publisher Jansson-Waesberg is named.

Map of the world showing geological features, from the work Mundus Subterraneus (1768) by the German Jesuit scholar Athanasius Kircher (circa 1601-1680). The map is labelled in Latin, with a title and key across top. Volcanoes and oceanic vents are marked, illustrating Kircher's theory that underground water, heated by the Earth's internal fires, caused the tides and the eruption of volcanoes. The geography of the map shows the areas reached by European explorers, with Australia (lower right) and New Guinea (far left) yet to be fully mapped.

The map is labelled in Latin, with a title at lower left. The title states that the map shows Asia Major (as opposed to Asia Minor), and that it shows the origin of the water systems of the area. A large underground sea is shown in the region of the Himalayas, providing water for the rivers. Kircher's theory was that underground water, heated by the Earth's internal fires, caused the tides and the eruption of volcanoes.

Artwork of the internal fires of the Earth, from the work Mundus Subterraneus (1768) by the German Jesuit scholar Athanasius Kircher (circa 1601-1680). The artwork shows volcanoes and oceans on the surface of the Earth, and underground chambers and fissures filled with water, with fires at the centre of the Earth. The Latin text at top describes Kircher's theory that underground water channels, heated by the central fires of the Earth, emerged in the sea (causing the tides) and in mountains (causing volcanoes). In the corners of the artwork are figures representing the four winds.

Areas of subsidence are blue, and volcanoes are marked as black dots. The seismic activity marks the active boundaries between the Earth's tectonic plates. The map, which overlaps at left and right, was produced by the Irish geologist Robert Mallet (1810-1881) and his son, US chemist John William Mallet (1832-1912). The map was produced using data from the British Association, and published in their report in 1858.

PHOTO: EAST NEWS/SCIENCE PHOTO LIBRARY Atoll. Survey of the South Keeling or Cocos Islands drawn by the crew of HMS Beagle, which included Charles Darwin, during 2-12 April 1836. The atoll consists of several small islands surr- ounding a central lagoon. The elevation section (lower frame) shows that the lagoon is shallow whilst the islands barely rise above sea level. Darwin (1809-82) was an unpaid naturalist aboard the Beagle during its voyage of 1831-36. In Distribution of Coral Reefs (1842) and Geolog- ical Observations on Volcanic Islands (1844), he argued that atolls provided evidence that the surface of the Earth changed gradually and not through a series of catastrophes.

Schiener, who observed sunspots in 1611 and subsequently disputed priority for the discovery with Galileo, published his work in this book, for many years the standard work on sunspots. The bears (bottom), and the book's title, represent the Duke of Orsini, Scheiner's patron, whose full name and title (Paulum Jordanum II, Duke of Orsini and Bracciani) is above the artwork. The Latin text mentions sunspots ('Macularum') and Scheiner's status as a German Jesuit.

PHOTO: EAST NEWS/SCIENCE PHOTO LIBRARY 16th century map of Venice showing the lagoon. Venice is a coastal city in the north-east of Italy. The main bulk of Venice is in the upper frame of the image and the large canal at the left is the Grand Canal. The Gallery of Maps in the Vatican Museums holds maps which were commissioned between 1578 and 1580 to show the regions of Italy and territories of the church. The maps are based on the work of Ignazio Danti, a 16th century Italian priest, mathematician, astronomer and cosmographer, and are an important record of 16th century geography. Here the many islands on which Venice is built can be seen.

The shape is distorted because it had not yet been accurately mapped. Two large rivers in Brazil are shown flowing from a large lake in eastern Brazil. The western coastline is by now fairly accurately mapped, but it was still not realised that Tierra del Fuego (bottom centre) in the Straits of Magellan, was a group of islands and not part of a large southern continent. The inset at lower left shows the Incan city of Cuzco in Peru. This map, published around 1630 by Jodocus Hondius, continued the earlier work of Gerard Mercator.

PHOTO: EAST NEWS/SCIENCE PHOTO LIBRARY World map, published around 1664 in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, by Dutch mapmaker Joan Blaeu (c.1599- 1673). The Latin title is Nova et Accuratissima Totius Terrarum Orbis Tabula (new and accurate all world map). Blaeu's maps built on those made by Mercator and Hondius in the late 16th and early 17th centuries. The Blaeu maps emphasized fine art and colours, being the most expensive of the time. Two mapmakers are shown at upper right and upper left, together with a wide variety of mythical beings. The poorly-mapped regions include the far north and south, parts of the Americas (left-hand hemisphere), and the Far East. The western coast of Australia (New Holland) was discovered in 1616.

In producing this map, which has been inverted from the original to put north at top, Mauro was forced to alter the land masses to fit his Christian doctrine. According to the Apocrypha, the Earth is six-sevenths land. Mauro drew oceans and continents to fit this belief. The original is held in the Bibliotecha Marciana in Venice, Italy. Taken from A Book of Discovery (1912) by M.B. Synge.

His skillful use of perspective and mathematical proportions made him one of the outstanding artistic figures of the early 16th century. This world map is based on Ptolemy's map plus extensions from Behaim's Globe of 1492. It is the first known perspective drawing of the entire Earth as a sphere, and was published in 1515, using the best maps of the time in collaboration with Nuremberg astronomer Johann Stabius. The map shows the world surrounded by 12 wind gods. Taken from Dr Willi Kurth's The Complete Woodcuts of Albrecht Durer (1936).

PHOTO: EAST NEWS/SCIENCE PHOTO LIBRARY Halley's chart of the Atlantic. Chart of the Atlantic Ocean showing variations in compass readings, published in 1700 by the English astronomer, meteorologist and physicist Edmond Halley (1656-1742). Halley is most famous for his work on comets, but he also worked in many other areas including what is now called geophysics. In 1698 and 1699 he was given command of a ship by King George III and told to record geographical variations in compass readings (the amount the horizontal alignment of the needle differs from geographical North) as a way for sailors to determine longitude. The lines, known as isogonic lines, show places where the magnetic variation is equal. Accurate maritime clocks a few decades later made this work redundant.

Ferdinand Magellan (c.1480-1521) set sail from Seville, Spain, in August 1519 with five ships. He sailed south and west around the tip of South America and then sailed for 100 days across the Pacific. Magellan died in the Philippines, and only a single ship completed the circumnavigation, returning to Spain in September 1522. The lighter line shows a route across the Atlantic from Spain to Central America and then to Peru. Twelve wind cherubs are also shown. This atlas was produced in Venice by Italian mapmaker Battista Agnese. The US Library of Congress acquired this edition in 1943.

PHOTO: EAST NEWS/SCIENCE PHOTO LIBRARY Prehistoric sea level map. Published in 1913, this map shows changes in rivers and drainage patterns with sea level changes in Western Europe in prehistoric times (40,000 to 100,000 years ago). The map shows existing land masses (green) together with land masses which existed when sea levels were much lower than now (light green). At such times the rivers (blue) flowed across grassy plains now covered by sea. Sea levels are linked to periods of glaciation when much of the Earth's water is frozen to make glaciers, resulting in a drop in sea levels. Map from the 1913 edition of Prehistoric Times (Sir John Lubbock).
