    Display of Instruments on Seventeenth-Century Astronomical Frontispieces2014In: Scientific Instruments on Display / [ed] Silke Ackermann, Richard Kremer, Mara Miniati, Brill Academic Publishers, 2014, p. 199-215Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This essay explores how the illustrations in seventeenth-century astronomical books address consumption. It asks how instruments are displayed on frontispieces and illustrated title pages. Illustrations on the first pages of the book, when there are any, advertise the content. This was where the producers of the book could communicate to the user why it should be bought, read, and further used. I am particularly interested in the kinds of settings in which the instruments are displayed, in the human actions to which they are connected, and in how these images are referred to in the text, particularly as concerns consumption.

    Abstract [en]

    In 17th century Europe, art, science and technology were deeply intertwined. Mapping Spaces traces the multifaceted relationship between the disciplines. The article explores how the combined interest in mapping of the heavens and earth was presented in illustrations, particularly frontispieces in books on astronomy.

    Inspiration from Antique Heroic Deeds: Hercules as an Astronomer2012In: Culture and cosmos: a journal of the history of astrology and cultural astronomy, ISSN 1368-6534, Vol. 16, no 1-2, p. 139-150Article in journal (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In the early modern period (during the Renaissance/Baroque eras) the comparison of the astronomer and his work to a Hercules or a Herculean Effort was not unusual. The learned and intellectual Hercules was described as an ideal and put forward as exemplary. This paper explores how the comparison was presented in text and image.

    Taking possession of astronomy: Frontispieces and illustrated title pages in 17th-century books on astronomy2010Doctoral thesis, monograph (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The thesis is a survey of 291 frontispieces and illustrated title pages in European books on astronomy from the 17th century. It is a quantitative and qualitative survey of how motifs are related to consumption, identification and display. Elements in the motifs related to factual content as opposed to those aimed to raise the perceived value of astronomy are distinguished.

    The quantitative study shows that astronomical phenomena (90 per cent) and scientific instruments (62 per cent, or as much as 86 per cent if only titles with illustrations occupying an entire page are considered) are the most common motifs to inform the reader of the genre. Besides these, a wide range of depicted features indicate the particularity of each title. Different means for raising the value of astronomy and its attributes are identified. The interplay of “real” or “credible” elements with fictional ones was used to attract attention, create positive associations and promote acquisition and reading. The motifs mainly promote delectation and erudition, although some attract attention through their deliberately enigmatic design and a few through fear. The survey determines prevalent settings (palaces, the theatre, gardens, the wilderness and the heavens), activities (skilful use of instruments, conversations or disputes), references to the ancients and heraldic components. They present both the self-image of astronomers at the time and ideal components that contain connotations of an enhanced reality. This self-image also contributed to the definition of normative values for astronomers in the 17th century. The affinities between painters and astronomers are examined.

    In addition, an analysis of descriptions of frontispieces is undertaken, which shows that the user of the book was expected to devote considerable time to the frontispiece in order to understand all of its particular features and that the illustrations were suitable for display and learned digression.
