1602857404Code 6755 Antique globeTerrestrial globe published in the fifties by Vallardi publisher, drawn and engraved by A. Minelli, papier-mâché sphere covered with paper printed by engraving on copper plate and watercolored, walnut base with four feet complete with the circle of the meridian nade of engraved brass. In addition to the territorial map, the main trade routes of the period are shown. Good condition. Height 65 cm - 25.5 inches, width 50 cm - 19.6 inches, sphere diameter 40 cm - 15.7 inches.

The origins of the publisher Vallardi date back to 1750 when founder Francesco Cesare (1736-1799) acquired a small craft in the heart of old Milan. In the early nineteenth century, the publishing house was noted for the production of works of art, geography and science, including a "Tour of Italy" which took twenty-two printings between 1819 and 1835. The complete works of various maps and directions for travel, including timetables and fares for transportation of the time, can be considered the first modern tourist guide. The firm "Vallardi" was born in 1843 and the company became industrial, with the opening of branches on national scale.

Today it is often mis-used the word "world map" to indicate the item that cartographers call "globe", that is the representation of the Earth through a sphere; instead a world map is a geographical representation of the world in plan, and it is an expression dating back to the Middle Ages (mappa mundi). Historians have different opinions on what may be regarded as the oldest cartographic documents, but one of them is a clay tablet discovered in 1930 at the ruins of the village of Ga-Sur, about 200 miles at the north of the site of Babylon, and attributed at the time of the dynasty of Sargon of Akkad (2300-2500 BC), and which represents two hills cut by a river.
