Narratives

Georg Hartmann

Though university-educated and following a career in the church, Georg Hartmann also set up an instrument-making workshop. Printed paper astrolabes [1] would have been much cheaper than brass. However, Hartmann also sought to rationalise traditional metal manufacture by producing brass astrolabes in small batches rather than one at a time.
