The Planetary System

Depicting an eclipse of the Sun, the Moon, the Zodiacal Light and a Meteoric Shower.

By Levi Walter Yaggy in 1887

Yaggy’s?large geographical charts are among the most beautiful and impressive educational charts published in the 19th century. Using chromolithography, Yaggy created stunning colours and contrasts in his images of the world, its regions, and peoples.

Yaggy intended his charts to be used in classrooms by students and issued a teacher?s handbook to assist with instruction.
