One thought on “The oldest globe to depict the New World

  1. It’s fascinating to think that America has grown so much in just 500 years and that there have been no bones found of the Dragon Sea Monster. So much change in so little time…….. Actually is really is fascinating to think that people could have known of the existence of the America’s and yet got their scale so wrong.. Comparisons with globes of today would be so profound and yet while ours are much more accurate, they lose some of the beauty of an object like this one when man’s imagination was really starting to take off.
