Giovanni Maria Cassini (1745-1824)
Cassini was a Rome based Italian globe maker, geographer, engraver, and
cartographer active in the later part of the 18th and early 19th
century. Not to be confused with the un-related well known French
cartographic family of the same name, Cassini is best known as a globe
maker and is considered the last of the great 18th century globe
makers. Unlike many map and atlas publishers of the period, Cassini did
all of his own engraving work.
