1604922181Code 6658 Antique globeTerrestrial globe, on the cartouche you read: ERD-GLOBUS cm 25 Neu Baerbeitet von Dr Fischer, Wagner & Debes Leipzig Lehrmittel Anstalt, 1920s. In addition to the very well defined territorial map, it depicts the ocean currents and the main trade routes of the period. Base of turned wood with compass at the base. Good condition, excellent readability. Height 50 cm - 19.68 inches, sphere diameter 25 cm - 9.84 inches.

The Leipzig Geographical Institute of Wagner & Debes was an important German cartographic printer and publisher in the 19th-early 20th century. Eduard Wagner established in 1835 a lithographic press, and in 1872 Heinrich Wagner, son of Eduard Wagner, took over, moved the presses to Leipzig, and established his own publishing firm with Ernst Debes.

The first known globe is attributed by Strabo, historian and geographer, to Cratete from Mallo (about 150 B.C.). First globes, in early XVI century, were made because of geographical explorations and they were used for didactic uses in courts and colleges, then in universities and high schools. In the XIX century, because of trade, scholastic obligation and wishes to know far countries, the old method to make globes was changed in the new technique of lithography that made possible to print and to update maps that following new discoveries became old very quickly.
