The most important globe-manufacture was founded by Dietrich Reimer in Berlin, 1852. He bought Carl Adami's company which one founded in 1838. In the first time, to the middle of 1860's, the company published terrestial and celestial globes planned by Adami. Heinrich Kiepert, who was born in Berlin and was the most famous carto-geographer at Reimer's company, created globes with rich geographical and historical content.
Kiepert corrected the Adami's globes at the first time, but from the 1870's he made new globes.
