Malby & Co. was a family firm established in London around 1839 by Thomas Malby Senior and became one of the best known British globemakers of the era. He set up a workshop at 22 Houghton St where he produced globes of varying dimensions. His most well know globe was a reissuing of Addison’s 36” terrestrial globe which was shown at the Great Exhibition in 1861. Around 1862 Malby published globes by Edward Stanford (1827-1904) and also worked with map and globe maker James Wyld. Malby & Co. continued to produce globes until the beginning of the 20th century.
