Gérard Valk or Gerrit Leendertsz Valck (1652-1726) and his son Leonard were the only major publishers of globes in the Netherlands in the 18th century, enjoying an almost total monopoly in the first half of the 1700s Valk founded his company in Amsterdam in 1687. Originally, they published maps and atlases. They then produced several editions of terrestrial and celestial globes. Around 1711, when he became a member of the booksellers' guild, Leonard Valk (1675-1746) joined forces and his name began to appear alongside that of his father on the cartridges of globes and old maps. Leonard naturally took control of the business on the death of his father in 1726 and, after his own death in 1746, the company was managed by Maria Valk, cousin and wife of Gérard.
