German astronomer and professor of mathematics who built the first observatory at Jena (1554–1611). Rare AQS in Latin on an off-white 5.25 x 5.25 sheet, signed in the lower right and dated Jena, July 13, 1591. In full (untranslated): “Uti cantos gubernatores decet, dum tranquillitas arridet, ad defendendam tempestatem instrumenta expedire: sic par est virum prudentem afflante fortuna, reflantis praesidia comparare.” Affixed at the left edge to a slightly larger card. In very good condition, with dampstaining affecting several words. In 1597, Johannes Kepler would send his first major astronomical work, Mysterium Cosmographicum, to Limnaeus, who offered great praise on the groundbreaking work. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
