In 1652, Moxon visited Amsterdam and commissioned the engraving of globe-printing plates by Nicolas Visscher, and by the end of the year was selling large celestial and terrestrial globes in a new business venture. He specialized in the printing of maps and charts, and in the production of globes, and mathematical instruments made of paper.
