1739 1ed Astrology Cosmogony Occult Pagan Egyptian Mythology Egypt Illustrated

‘The History of the Sky’ by Noel Antoine Pluche, is one of the most important and well-known treatises on astronomy and cosmology. This rare edition, published by Estienne, is illustrated with 24 full-page engravings by J. P. le Bas. These images depict mythological beings and creatures, sculptures and art of ancient Egyptian gods, and other important historical esoteric and pagan symbols.

In this work, Pluche “restated his opposition to the cosmologies proposed by physicists. He also attempted to demonstrate that monotheism preceded polytheism.” (DSB).
