Geographical Globes.

pherical map of the earth (terrestrial globe) or sky (celestial globe). Terrestrial globes provide Earth's inhabitants a graphic representation of their planet in shape and relative size.

Probably the earliest globe was constructed by the Greek geographer Crates of Mallus in 2d cent. B.C. Few attempts were made to construct globes in the Middle Ages, although Strabo and Ptolemy, at the begining of the Christian era, had created a parchment globe. The first globes of modern times were made in the late 15th cent. by Martin Behaim of Nuremburg and Leonardo da Vinci. One of the earliest globes constructed (1506) after the discovery of America is in the New York Public Library.

Since 1930 Replogle of Chicago has practiced the art of globe making, and continues as the world's largest manufacturer of geographical globes.
