Catalogue Note

Robert Morden was a publisher of maps and books and an instrument maker. From 1671 until his death in 1703 he worked at the Atlas in Cornhill, near the Royal Exchange. William Berry (1639-1718), was a globe maker and book seller who had been apprenticed to Joseph Moxon in 1656. Initially based in Holborn, he moved in 1674 to the Globe between York House and New Exchange, Strand but in 1676 he moved again to the Globe in Craggs Court between Charing Cross and Whitehall. Although they planned to offer globes of other sizes, only 14-inch globes have been recorded.
