Here is an exquisite reproduction featuring the cartography of Robert de Vaugondy, globemaker for Louis XIV.
This globe will make the perfect desk ornament at just 5 inches in diameter. Twelve paper gores are applied to the core on this hand made antique globe replica. Vaugondy globes are produced using copies of the original paper globe gores that are securely stored at the Biblioteque Nationale de France. Special attention is taken to replicate the complex 'gravure' printing process that was used during this time period.
