The Nuremberg mathematician, physicist and astronomer Johann Gabriel Doppelmayr (1677 - 1750), one of the most renowned natural scientists of his time, is the creator behind this pair of globes. In fact, no natural science collection with universal pretensions, such as a cabinet of curiosities or a magnificent princely baroque library, could do without such a pair of terrestrial and celestial globes.
Doppelmayr undertook towards the end of his studies at the University of Halle a study trip to England and the Netherlands from 1700
Provenance: Library of the last Prince-Bishop of Basel Franz Xaver von Neveu (1749 - 1828); after his death it became private property of the family of Neveu, Durbach.
