This Authentic Model globe offers history at your fingertips and highlights some of the world's most famous cartographers: Mercator, Hondius, Kaerius, and Vaugondy.

This is illustrated by 17th Century Dutch painters who used globes to symbolize affluence, science, sophistication, even worldliness.
