The firm of Cary was established by John Cary (c.1754-1835), a noted map-seller and engraver, and his brother William (c.1760-1825), an instrument maker. The firm published their first globes in 1791 and by the end of the eighteenth century had already established themselves as one of London's most eminent globe manufacturers. In about 1820 the Cary brothers moved their business to 86 St James's Street, leaving their premises at 181 Strand to John Cary's two sons George (c.1788-1859) and John Jr. (1791-1852) who traded as G & J Cary until about 1850 and continued to produce globes of the highest standards. For further examples of the company's work see those illustrated in Elly Dekker and Peter van der Krogt, Globes from the Western World, 1993, pls. 33, 37, and 38.
