Mercator working out his globe in 1541 Mercator was the most famous mapmaker of the 16th century, the Age of Discovery (Magellan, Jacques Cartier, Francis Drake,...).
His world and celestial globes were considered as reference globes by Charles V, Holy Roman Emperor and Francis I of France.
Original specimen of the Mercator globe from 1541
Reproduction of a globe realized by Mercator in 1541 and dedicated to Nicolas Perrenot de Granvelle, chancellor of Charles V (1500-1558), Holy Roman Emperor.
An original specimen of this globe is carefully guarded in the Stadtmuseum of Duisburg, town where Mercator lived from 1552.
The wood has a french finishing (repetitive manual polishing with very soft pads) who gives him a brilliant aspect, deep colors and a very soft touch.

Attention to detail, historical interest, “authentic” materials characterize this very fine globe made by AM, world-renowned for its “museum quality” reproductions.
