Thomas Malby, started the family firm of globe makers about 1839 and continued producing globes until the turn of the 20th century. The firm operated as Malby & Son with Thomas Malby, Jr. Globes produced by the company generally were engraved by C. Malby -- presumably a family member -- and later continued by Thomas Malby III. The firm is perhaps best known for producing a strikingly large re-issue of John Addison's 1825 terrestrial globe at about 36 inches in diameter (92cm.) produced for the Great Exhibition in 1851. Malby also produced a variety of table globes in many sizes as well as an interesting pocket globe. The depiction of the lines of magnetic variation on a globe was a Malby innovation. By 1862, Malby globes were published by Edward Stanford (1827-1904) whose company is still in business today. Malby also worked with James Wyld, a map, atlas, and globe-maker.
