Edmond Halley, English astronomer, mathematician, meteorologist, and physicist, (c1850). Halley (1656-1742), Astronomer Royal from 1720 until 1742, discovered the proper motions of stars and the periodicity of comets. He correctly calculated that the comets seen in 1531 and 1607 were the same objects that followed a 76 year orbit - the comet now know as 'Halley's Comet'. Unfortunately, Halley did not live to see his prediction come true when the comet returned on Christmas Eve 1758. Taken from the book Old England's Worthies. (London, c1850). (Colorised black and white print).
This giclée print delivers a vivid image with maximum color accuracy and exceptional resolution. The standard for museums and galleries around the world, giclée is a printing process where millions of ink droplets are “sprayed” onto high-quality paper. With the great degree of detail and smooth transitions of color gradients, giclée prints appear much more realistic than other reproduction prints. The high-quality paper (235 gsm) is acid free with a smooth surface.
