Vaugondy Globe (Circa 1745) – Small
Father, Gilles Robert de Vaugondy, and son, Didier Robert de Vaugondy, were the leading mapmakers in France during the 1700s. Didier was appointed geographer to Louis XV in 1760 and published globes of various sizes, the biggest with a diameter of 2.6m, 8.5’! The charming size of this globe conveys the same historical detail as larger globe models.
A wonderful gift!
