The Met Museum of Arts Accessory Astral Ballpoint Pen. Astronomicum Caesareum, one of the most sumptuous of all Renaissance instructive manuals, explains the use of the astrolabe (for calculating the altitude of stars) and other instruments used for computing planetary positions. The author, court astronomer to Emperor Charles V, also provided new observations on the comet of 1531 (Halley’s Comet). Only about forty copies of this work survive, one in the Metropolitan Museum. This pen is based on hand-colored woodcuts in the original work.
