All the world’s a stage! But in the case of this Curious Object, the world is a tiny pocket globe covered in sharkskin and lined with a celestial chart. Measuring just 7cm in diameter, this globe was made in London around 1775. Pocket globes were first produced in England by Joseph Moxon and remained in vogue as a gentleman’s toy well into the 19th century. Often – as is the case here – they showed the latest terrestrial and celestial discoveries. This globe tracks the first voyage of Captain Cook’s Endeavour and reflects the discoveries he made. It was presented to the Royal Colonial Institute (now the Royal Commonwealth Society) in 1953 by Olive M Thompson. To borrow another line from Shakespeare: ‘That ends this strange, eventful history.’

Cambridge University Press published its first book in 1584, making it the oldest publishing house in the world. Over the next four centuries the Press's reputation spread throughout Europe, based on excellence in scholarly publishing of academic texts, poetry, school books, prayer books and Bibles. Along the way Cambridge published ground-breaking works such as Newton's Principia Mathematica, Milton's Lycidas, Ernest Rutherford's Radio-activity, and Noam Chomsky's Language and Mind.
