Cabot Waldseemüller Desktop World Globe from  Replogle® Globes
Sale $49.99  (free shipping/handling)    Retail:$69.00
Cabot desktop world globe honors Sebastian Cabot, the Italian cartographer and explorer for whom, unfortunately, little can be verified.  He is believed to have lived from around 1484-1557.  It is substantiated that he led a voyage in 1527 to reach the Moluccas in Indonesia, but instead spent him time exploring the River Plate.  Cabot's own accounts of his journeys have all been lost, and all that remains of his work is a map drawn in 1544 that is preserved in the Bibliothèque National de France in Paris. 

The Cabot globe is available with either the Waldseemüller * globe ball (seen here) or Coronelli ball (smaller image).  Its Early American style design features a rich look obtained from its fine hand-tuned hardwood base and post, along with a hardwood semi-meridian.

Diameter: 6"  (15cm)

Frequently Asked Questions

* Martin Waldseemüller was a German cartographer, who was regarded as one of Worlds finest cartographers, best known for his Universalis Cosmographia, a 12-sheet woodblock map dated 1507.  Not only was it one of the first maps to precisely chart latitude and longitude, but it was the first to reference the name "America" (honoring Amerigo Vespucci). One of Waldseemüller's gore globes sold for  $1002,267 USD, thus fetching a world record price for such items.
