Willem Blaeu's guide to the making of globes, first published in 1620, here reprinted by his son, Joan.

The book consists of two parts;
volume I : Astronomical principles of celestial and terrestrial globes based on the inadequate hypothesis of Ptolemy.

Volume II : Astronomical principles of globes based on the true hypothesis of Copernicus.

Blaeu wrote this book with the intention of propagating Copernican hypothesis.
Blaeu was one of the first Copernicans in the Dutch Republic. His knowledge as an astronomer in combination with his skills as a printer and possibilities as a publisher enabled him to actively steer the presentation and dissemination of Copernicusís ideas.

The book became very popular, and was translated in French, German, English, among in Japanese by Motoki Ryoei in 1774 and was based on a 1666 edition bought to Nagasaki by the V.O.C.

Provenance: Dr.Otto Orren Fisher (bookplate)who was a 1909 Miami alumnus who went on to the John Hopkins University School of Medicine before settling in Detroit. He was industrial surgeon for the Hudson Motor Company and established one of the first modern industrial first aid units there. In 1941, he won the Alumni Associationís prestigious Bishop Medal for his contributions to society.

Dr. Fisher also was a nationally renowned collector of rare books and manuscripts, who began with the goal of owning just one rare item in his lifetime. Upon his death in 1961, his collection of more than 80,000 rare volumes spanned across 25 different categories, including signatures of all U.S. Presidents up until that time, and covered three floors of his home.
J H Verheyen (19th century signature to front free end-paper).
