I've seen the Boll book which is titled 'Sphaera'
and is a very learned work about ancient astrology,
discussing a.o. paranatellonta. I scanned the
illustration of MS Taurinensis from that book. 
There are only very few illustrations in it.
The CCAG is something else (see above). It is 
certainly something worth looking at, but then
again, wouldn't someone else (Panofsky, or his
friend Saxl) already have done that?
It is (was) on my list of things to do, one
of those things that I had long forgotten about.

Cheers, Rene
