C.S. Hammond & Co. was a prominent producer of maps and globes from the late 19th century though most of the 20th Century. In its formative years, it was one of the few globe manufacturers not to move to Chicago, instead producing their globes in New York, Brooklyn and Boston. Many of their globes from the second quarter of the 20th Century resemble those made by the London globe maker Philip & Son, which possibly provided the gores to Hammond. In addition, in this period, some Hammond globes were made by the Chicago globe maker Weber Costello, affixed with a Hammond overlabel on the cartouche.
