"1660: A Glimpse into the Past" Step back in time to the year 1660, where night watchmen patrolled the streets of Amsterdam, ensuring safety and order under the moonlit sky. This vibrant city was bustling with life and culture, as depicted in a rectified redraft of the Castello Plan - an invaluable glimpse into New York's earliest known plan during this century. Amsterdam, a hub of innovation and enlightenment, saw remarkable advancements in astronomy. In Andreas Cellarius' Atlas Coelestis seu Harmonia Macrocosmica published that very year, we witness Copernicus taking center stage alongside Ptolemy. Their contrasting views on our universe are beautifully engraved on copperplates for all to marvel at. Art enthusiasts will appreciate Pope Innocent X immortalized by Velazquez's masterful brushstrokes. This captivating portrait captures both power and vulnerability within its frame. Delving deeper into celestial realms, Ptolemy's intricate system unfolds before us through ancient maps like "PTOLEMYs SYSTEM (1)" and "PTOLEMYs SYSTEM (2). " These visual representations provide insight into how our ancestors perceived their place in the cosmos. Meanwhile, "The Coronation of the Virgin" transports us to a world steeped in religious devotion. The divine ceremony unfolds before our eyes as faith intertwines with artistic expression. But it is Copernicus who challenges convention with his revolutionary ideas showcased in "Copernicuss System (1). " His groundbreaking heliocentric model places the sun at the center of our universe – a concept that would forever change humanity's understanding of space. Across vast oceans lies another fascinating discovery - a map depicting the Americas from 1660. It serves as a testament to explorers' courage and curiosity during an era marked by great voyages across uncharted territories.
