A magnificent 17th century Hondius terrestrial globe reproduction. Hondius had the advantage over previous globemakers, making use of the most recent discoveries that transpired during voyages made on Dutch trade routes.
Mounted in an exotic ebonized wood stand with bronze semi-meridian. Deserving of a special spot on a desk or table, this globe will inspire conversation and add interest to any setting.
Reproduction globes are produced using original charts that have been researched for their historical accuracy. Special attention is taken to replicate the complex 'gravure' printing process that was used during this time period.
