The picture of the universe supported by Atlas, in William Cuningham's THE COSMOGRAPHICAL GLASSE published in 1559, shows how much "Western" astronomical tradition confused the model of the universe as in the armillary sphere with reality - a concept that persisted from the 3rd century BC to the mid-17th century.
