Literature: cf. Jan Felkl, Das Tellurium nebst Lunarium - Anleitung zu dessen Behandlung und Verwendung in der Schule sowohl, als auch im Privatunterrichte, Rostok bei Prag, 1879
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
In the late 19th Century, the Prague firm of J. Felkl and Son became the leading European globe maker, producing a variety of globes for export throughout Europe and to the United States. These globes were produced primarily for use in schools and institutions, but also for home libraries.

Jan Felkl was born in Bohemia in the early 19th century. As early as 1855, Felkl offered an illustrated prospectus for globes in six various sizes. Within the next 20 years, Felkl rose to be the largest globe manufacturer within the Austro-Hungarian market, producing terrestrial and celestial globes in 17 languages, as well as lunar globes, planetaria, telluria, lunaria and induction globes. Felkl exhibited his globes the world exhibitions of 1867 in Paris and 1873 in Vienna.

Felkl's early globes were produced by engraving and hand coloring the gores. Greater production, estimated at 15,000 globes per year in 1873 was made possible with the development of lithography. Felkl founded his own "geographic lithographic institute" in Prague to produce globe gores and maps. One of the best known authors of the German Felkl globes was the Leipzig cartographer Otto Delitsch, who developed the idea of brown color tone graduation of height.

In 1870, Felkl moved his factory from Prague to Roztok and took his youngest son Christoph Zikmund as partner in his firm, renamed Felkl & Son. They employed up to 40 people and opened branches in Prague and Vienna. After the death of Jan Felkl in 1887, the firm was continued by the Felkl family until the mid 20th Century.
