Exclusive Edition 024 Lander & May Bespoke Globe

The globe derives its name from the latin word “globus” which means sphere. The earliest form of the terrestrial globe appeared during the mid-second to third century BCE, around the time that the sphericity of the Earth was established by Greek astronomy. Globemaking became prominent in Great Britain in the eighteenth century CE when the country was known as the scientific and commercial center of the world due to its fervent exploration and empire expansion.
