The following are some beautiful images from a rather popular ephemerides by Bernardus de Granollachs, printed between 1484 and 1515. The slender (16-page) work, Lunarium: In quo Coniunctiones & oppositiones Lunae... was published first in Spanish in 1484 and was then picked up and reprinted in a number of other languages over the next few decades.

The image did remind me very slightly of another gorgeous thing which I wrote about earlier in this blog (here):
Some other variations in the Granollachs can be seen below:
