Father, Gilles Robert de Vaugondy, and son, Didier Robert de Vaugondy, were the leading mapmakers in France during the 1700s. Didier was appointed geographer to Louis XV in 1760 and published globes of various sizes, the biggest with a diameter of 8.5 feet! The small size of this globe conveys the same historical detail as larger globe models. This measures 3.25" in diameter and comes in a rugged decorative box. Combine this globe with our Globe Wood Base for the perfect gift.
