Globus Coelestis Novus
Nuremberg: Johann Gabriel Doppelmayr, 1728. 1 globe : hand coloured, mounted on a four-legged wooden stand with a metal meridian ring and an hour ring ; 31 cm. in diameter. Forms a pair with the terrestrial globe at Maps G.36.b.
Johann Gabriel Doppelmayr’s (1677-1750) celestial globe was accurate for the epoch 1730 and drew on the star catalogue of Johannes Hevelius of 1690. Also depicted are the paths of several comets observed by Hevelius, Johann Kepler, Giovanni Cassini and John Flamsteed. There were other German globe-makers in the early 1700s but Doppelmayr’s globes dominated the German market until the end of the eighteenth century. They were revised in the 1750s and ﬁnally in 1792 by Wolfgang Paul Jenig (d. 1805), forty-two years after Doppelmayr’s death.
This model was created for a 2020 British Library project to digitise globes from its historic map collection
