On the occasion of a discussion here
http://skyscript.co.uk/forums/viewtopic.php?t=6924
I just find this link on Skyscript:

http://fermi.imss.fi.it/rd/bdv?/bdviewer/bid=000000300491#

to an 18th century edition of the Astronomica by Manilius. Perhaps someone can give a link to an English (and/or German) translation, please? Surely there are some in the the 16th and/or 17th century be it in verses or in prose.

Johannes.

This title sounds very German to me.

Thank you very much, pankajdubey! Very Happy

You are right, the first two links are to Geman books. I'll read all three books this weekend.
