Abstract

<title> SUMMARY </title>The article shows the results of the first part of a research on the threeand-a-half-foot globes by V. Coronelli: the terrestrial globes. By means of the direct inspection of 31 terrestrial globes and the analysis of 9 replies to a specifically tailored form for an international survey, it has been possible to discover a new edition which leads to a redefinition of the four editions by Coronelli, thus eliminating the so-called «special issue». On examining the structure of the globes it was possible to categorize the different types of meridians and base stands, thus allowing us to identify a confusion between the two pairs at the Museum of Storia della Scienza in Florence.The final part includes a list of the editions of those globes taken into consideration
