1710001975Code 7891 Terrestrial GlobePolitical desktop terrestrial globe with airplane-shaped base, published in 1949 by Weber Costello Co. Chicago Heights Illinois. Paper mache sphere with black oceans and seas, in addition to the brightly colored territorial map, the main trade routes of the period are shown, and as indicated in the legend, capitals and cities, railways, steamship lines, canals, mountain peaks are included Both the airplane-shaped base and the semicircle of the meridian are a metal casting that was subsequently chromed. In good condition, with signs of use, very good readability. Height 41 cm – 16.1 inches, sphere diameter 30 cm – 11.8 inches.

C. F. Weber & Co. purchased the globe business of A. H. Andrews & Co. in 1896. The company became Weber Costello Frick Co. in 1902 and Weber Costello in 1909. After the Great Fire of 1871, 9 globe manufacturers established themselves in Chicago, the Windy City, who seemed to thrive on the competition by inspiring and stimulating innovative designs. In the 1920s the company boasted of having some of the largest and best equipped factories in the world, boasting 40 years of experience in the production of globes. Fame came during World War II when the company produced a pair of 50-inch (127 cm) diameter globes and sent one to Franklin Delano Roosevelt and the other to Churchill in London so they could coordinate their strategic plans by watching the same globe.

Man has always wanted to know the world in which he lives and has used all the means available to measure the space that surrounds him to increasingly broaden his knowledge. The conditions that allowed man to develop models of the world and space probably only came about after thought had reached such a level of development as to understand that natural processes could be represented through a model. Already in ancient Greece, naturalists had come to understand the sphericity of the Earth and its suspended position in space. The first globe we know of is the one attributed by Strabo, historian and geographer, to the Greek Crates of Mallo (around 150 BC). The first globes at the beginning of the 16th century. they were built under the pressure of great geographical explorations and immediately began to be used for educational purposes at princely courts, monasteries and colleges; the globe then begins to conquer university environments and high and low schools. It will be with the nineteenth century of great trade, circulation and the introduction of compulsory schooling that the desire to know distant countries will increase, making the old method of constructing globes inadequate. Spindles printed from engraved plates are no longer enough and the only real resource becomes lithography through which it is possible to promptly print and update maps which, with the growth of geographical discoveries made in various countries, become obsolete more and more quickly.
