Globus Terrestrius by Johann Gabriel Doppelmayr. Nuremberg, 1728. 1 globe, 31 cm. in diameter, mounted on a four-legged wooden stand with a meridian ring and hour ring.
The terrestrial globe displays many of the recent discoveries of the early eighteenth century, but it also pays homage to several important explorers of the past. Many tracks are shown, including those of Magellan, Le Maire, Tasman and Dampier, as well as the very recent journey of the Dutchman Jacob Roggeveen (1659–1729), who discovered Easter Island in 1722 during an unsuccessful expedition to ﬁnd the mythical great southern continent. Forms a pair with Johann Doppelmayr’s celestial globe, 1728 (Maps G.36.a.).
This model was created for a 2020 British Library project in partnershp with Cyreal to digitise globes from its historic map collection.
