Record Type: Person
Glockendon, Georg, the elder (German woodcutter, printer, and painter, died 1514)

Note: In 1492 Glockendon published Erhard Etzlaub's "Territorial Map of Nuremberg," the oldest printed political jurisdiction map. He also issued Etzlaub's "Roadmap Through the Holy Roman Empire" in 1501, an expanded version of the famous 1500 pilgrimage map. In 1509 he published his "Von der Kunst Perspectiva" (2 pages of text, 37 woodcuts), a plagiarized edition of Jean Pélerin's "De arte perspectiva." The contemporary biographer of Nuremberg artists, Johann Neudörfer, praised Glockendon's many illuminated Missals and songbooks. While most not yet been identified, his talents as a painter may be seen in the 'Erdapfel,' the oldest extant terrestrial globe (1491-1492). On this project he was assisted by his wife in illuminating the topographic features designed by Martin Beheim and executed by R. Kolberger. He is documented as briefly working as a painter for Frederick the Wise, Elector of Saxony, in 1509.
