Emery Molyneux was an English Elizabethan maker of globes, mathematical instruments and ordnance. His terrestrial and celestial globes, first published in 1592, were the first to be made in England and the first to be made by an Englishman. Molyneux was known as a mathematician and maker of mathematical instruments such as compasses and hourglasses. He became acquainted with many prominent men of the day, including the writer Richard Hakluyt and the mathematicians Robert Hues and Edward Wright.

  • Emery Molyneux was an English Elizabethan maker of globes, mathematical instruments and ordnance. His terrestrial and celestial globes, first published in 1592, were the first to be made in England and the first to be made by an Englishman. Molyneux was known as a mathematician and maker of mathematical instruments such as compasses and hourglasses. He became acquainted with many prominent men of the day, including the writer Richard Hakluyt and the mathematicians Robert Hues and Edward Wright. He also knew the explorers Thomas Cavendish, Francis Drake, Walter Raleigh and John Davis. Davis probably introduced Molyneux to his own patron, the London merchant William Sanderson, who largely financed the construction of the globes. When completed, the globes were presented to Elizabeth I. Larger globes were acquired by royalty, noblemen and academic institutions, while smaller ones were purchased as practical navigation aids for sailors and students. The globes were the first to be made in such a way that they were unaffected by the humidity at sea, and they came into general use on ships. Molyneux emigrated to Amsterdam with his wife in 1596 or 1597. He succeeded in interesting the States-General, the parliament of the United Provinces, in a cannon he had invented, but he died suddenly in June 1598, apparently in poverty. The globe-making industry in England died with him. Only six of his globes are believed still to be in existence. Three are in England, of which one pair consisting of a terrestrial and a celestial globe is owned by Middle Temple and displayed in its library, while a terrestrial globe is at Petworth House in Petworth, West Sussex.
  • Emery Molyneux, mort en juin 1598, était un fabricant de globes, d'instruments mathématiques et d'armes de l'époque élisabéthaine. Ses globes terrestres et célestes, présentés pour la première fois en 1592, furent à la fois les premiers créés en Angleterre et les premiers fabriqués par un Anglais. Molyneux était connu comme mathématicien et fabricant d'instruments mathématiques tels que sabliers et boussoles. Il devint familier avec nombre d'hommes éminents de l'époque comme l'écrivain Richard Hakluyt et les mathématiciens Robert Hues et Edward Wright. Il connut également les explorateurs Thomas Cavendish, Francis Drake, Walter Raleigh et John Davis. Davis a probablement présenté Molyneux à son propre patron, le marchand londonien William Sanderson, qui finança largement la construction des globes. Une fois achevés, ceux-ci ont été présentés à la reine Elisabeth Ire d'Angleterre. Les globes les plus grands furent achetés par la royauté, des nobles et des institutions académiques, tandis que les plus petits étaient vendus comme instruments de navigation à des navigateurs ou des étudiants. Ces globes furent les premiers conçus pour résister à l'humidité de la mer, et ils furent généralisés sur les navires. Molyneux émigra à Amsterdam avec sa femme en 1596 ou 1597. Il réussit à intéresser les États généraux, parlement des Provinces-Unies, à un canon de son invention, mais il mourut brutalement en juin 1598, apparemment dans la pauvreté. La fabrication anglaise de globes s'éteignit avec lui. Seulement six de ses globes ont été conservés. Ils se trouvent en Angleterre, avec notamment une paire constituée d'un globe terrestre et d'un globe céleste propriété de Middle Temple et exposée dans sa bibliothèque, tandis qu'un globe terrestre se trouve à Petworth House, située à Petworth, dans le Sussex de l'Ouest.
  • I suoi mappamondi terrestri e celesti, diffusi a partire dal 1592, furono i primi ad essere realizzati in Inghilterra ed i primi realizzati da un inglese. Molyneux conobbe numerosi personaggi di rilievo della sua epoca, tra cui gli esploratori Thomas Cavendish, John Davis, Francis Drake e Walter Raleigh, lo scrittore Richard Hakluyt e i matematici Robert Hues ed Edward Wright. Fu probabilmente Davis a presentargli il mercante londinese William Sanderson, che finanziò la realizzazione di parecchi mappamondi poi presentati alla regina Elisabetta I. I mappamondi e le bussole più grandi furono acquistati dalla famiglia reale e da nobili ed istituzioni accademiche, quelli più ridotti divennero di uso comune come strumenti di navigazione per marinai, navigatori e studenti. Molyneux emigrò ad Amsterdam con la moglie nel 1596–1597 ed inventò un cannone che destò l'interesse degli Stati Generali e del parlamento delle Province Unite. Morì improvvisamente in povertà nel giugno del 1598, e con lui scomparve l'arte della realizzazione di bussole e mappamondi in Inghilterra. Oggi esistono soltanto sei mappamondi di Molyneux, di cui tre in Inghilterra: un globo terrestre ed un globo celeste sono conservati a Londra nella biblioteca del Middle Temple, un terzo globo - anch'esso terrestre - è conservato a Petworth House nella cittadina di Petworth, nel West Sussex.
