Biography:
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.
