"Johann Baptist Homann (born March 20, 1664 in Oberkammlach, today part of Kammlach in the Unterallgäu district; † July 1, 1724 in Nuremberg) was a German cartographer, publisher, engraver and made globes.... Johann Baptist Homann died on January 1st July 1724. His company passed to his son Johann Christoph Homann (1703-1730). He appointed his two managing directors, Johann Georg Ebersberger (or Ebersperger) and Johann Michael Franz, as heirs of the business. After his death, the company went under continued under the name "Homanns Erben" (also "Homannsche Erben" or "Homännische Erben", French Heritiers de Homann, lat Homannianos Heredes). In the middle of the 18th century, renowned scholars such as Johann Michael Franz, Tobias Mayer, Johann Gabriel Doppelmayr, Georg Moritz Lowitz, Johann Hübner and Johann Gottfried Gregorii worked for the company. The long and eventful success story of the industry leader only ended in 1848 with the death of the last owner, Christoph Franz Fembo." - Wikipedia
