156200919416734Code 1795 Globe Columbus 1920sTerrestrial library globe edited by Columbus, by prof. Ernst Friedrich, 1920’s. Very good condition. Height cm 110 - inches 43.30, diameter of sphere cm 50 - inches 19.68.

Established in 1909 in Berlin by Paul Oestergarrd, nephew of Peter J. Oestergaard, a globes maker at the end of XIX century, Columbus is the oldest globes manufacture, working still today, in the world. During more than a century Columbus has innovated the globe making industry and because of experience accumulated over 4 generations the Columbus brand has become one of the most important globe manufacturer in the world.

In the XVIII century, the official geographer of Louis XV King of France, Robert Didier de Vaugondy, thanks to the practical experience gained in the construction of globes, expanded the article "Globe" in the Encyclopédie explaining very well the difference between a celestial globe (representing the concave surface of the sky with its constellations) and a terrestrial globe (which represents the surface of the Earth with its seas, islands, rivers, cities, etc.) and all the techniques to make them: two papier maché hemispheres pressed and molded onto or into a hemispherical mold, let dry and reinforced with a plank of wood, then glued and covered with a thin layer of plaster on which the lunes of the globe were glued (the regions between two meridians, usually twelve, each covering 30 degrees of longitude), made ​​of paper that had been previously printed by engraving on copper plate and then colored.
