Jacob Floris van Langren (c. 1525 - 27 July 1610) was a Dutch cartographer and globe-maker who established a family dynasty of three generations in those professions. He was born in Gelderland but moved to the Southern Netherlands and later to Amsterdam, where his sons Arnoldus and Henricus were born. From about 1586 Jacob and his son Arnold produced globes, both terrestrial and celestial, the first ever produced in the northern Low Countries. Over the next fifty years, the van Langrens continued to revise and improve their engravings; Petrus Plancius collaborated on the 1589 edition. In 1592, the States General granted the Van Langren family a monopoly in the production of globes, which led to quarrels with Jodocus Hondius.

dbo:abstract
  • Jacob Florisz van Langren (ca. 1525 - 27 juli 1610) was een Nederlands cartograaf en globemaker. Van Langren werd in Gelderland geboren, maar verhuisde naar de Zuidelijke Nederlanden en van daar naar Amsterdam, waar zijn zoons Arnoldus en Henricus werden geboren. Met zijn oudste zoon vervaardigde Van Langren in 1586 twee bij elkaar horende aard- en hemelglobes. Voor de aardglobe was Van Langren schatplichtig aan het werk van Mercator en hij had ook de beschikking over nieuw kaartmateriaal van Spaanse en Portugese oorsprong. In 1592 kreeg de familie Van Langren van de Staten-Generaal een monopolie voor de verkoop van globes. De cartograaf Jodocus Hondius verzette zich tegen dit alleenrecht. Met succes, want eind zestiende eeuw was er sprake van felle concurrentie bij de fabricage van globes in Amsterdam, tussen de Van Langrens, Hondius, Willem Blaeu en de Engelsman Emery Molyneux. Van Langren overleed in Alkmaar in 1610 en ligt begraven in de Grote of Sint-Laurenskerk. Het Scheepvaartmuseum in Amsterdam is in het bezit van een globe van de hand van Van Langren. (nl)
