Beer [3]

Beer (Wilhelm), Geh. Commerzienrath und Bankier zu Berlin, geb. 1797, gest. 1850, ein sehr geschätzter Astronom. Nach den Befreiungskriegen, die er als Freiwilliger mitgemacht, widmete er sich der Handlung, lebte aber neben seinem Geschäfte mit Eifer der Wissenschaft, und zwar mit Vorliebe der Astronomie. Besondere Berühmtheit erlangte er durch seine mit seinem Freunde Mädler angestellten Mondbeobachtungen; die von ihm und Mädler 1836 erschienene Mondkarte in 4 Blättern ist allgemein als ein Meisterwerk anerkannt und wurde auch von der französ. Akademie mit dem Preise gekrönt. Ein Jahr später erschien von ihm: »der Mond nach seinen kosmischen und individuellen Verhältnissen oder allgemeine vergleichende Selenographie.«
