Date is estimated. Central gold painted sunball, and metal armature with driving band to a small 20 mm diameter earth ball, with paper gores, four wooden circles presenting the courses of Earth, Mars, Jupiter and Venus. The internal orrery set inside Equinox and solstice meridians, with engraved papered scales and zodiacal figures. Mounted on an ebonized wooden stand, with turned central pillar and base. Delamarche was the likely maker of this armillary sphere, although it is not signed so it might have been made by members of his "school." Delamarche was one of the first to make globes and armillary spheres for the general public, using affordable materials.

Both the terrestrial and celestial were copied (with credit given) from C. Smith's English globes. Annin & Smith of Boston did the engraving. Loring was succeeded in business by Gilman Joslin who continued to produce globes under Loring's name until the 1850's (Warner).

Note
The date of the globes is an estimate. Paired with a three inch celestial globe. On a turned wooden stand with four black ball feet, full height from base to top, 5 inches. Warner says that Wilson changed the business name from Wilson & Co. to Wilson & Sons in 1822. The celestial globe this is paired with is by Wilson & Sons, so I assume 1822 as the only year globes were made with both business names. The globe is very well engraved, showing much detail in the continents for its small size. Longitude is given from both Washington and London. Kimball notes that David Wilson, James' son, did the engraving for a new edition of the three inch globes in the early 1820's, which I assume are these globes. David later had brief success as a miniature painter, utilizing the same delicate engraving skills which he applied to these extremely well engraved globes. The three inch globe was also sold in pocket form with the celestial sphere on the inside of the case and on a stand with horizon ring and brass meridian. On this turned wooden stand version, the globe is mounted horizontally, an unusual presentation. Wilson made the first globes in the United States, with 1810 his first year of production and 1850 (by Cyrus Lancaster) his last.

Townsend's second collapsible globe with an internal mechanism for holding it open. The first collapsible Townsend globe was held open by an external stand - apparently no examples exist. Townsend was a school teacher in Vermont and later in California. His interest in globes was to produce a cheap globe that could be owned and used by students instead of a flat "map which, without explanation, is a false illustration, and can be understood only by a process of reasoning entirely beyond the mind of the child" (from Townsend's "Folding Globe Lessons"). This copy is presumed to be the second issue of this globe - an earlier issue has a somewhat different folder with only Townsend listed as publisher. However, it is not certain that both examples were not produced simultaneously in different cities. Both Globes are dated the same. Originally from the Welsh Collection. With a photocopy of Townsend's Folding-Globe Lessons, and an original advertising flyer for the globe.

The second year of production of Wilson's Thirteen Inch Globe by Cyrus Lancaster. Compared to the last Wilson issue of 1834 (see our #4310) we cannot detect any changes in the geography. In fact, both the 1834 and the 1836 are out of date regarding the United States - Arkansas is shown in enlarged pre 1824 form and Northwestern Territory is shown where Michigan Territory should be. But then most of the early American globes did not keep current with the changes to political geography. With a four leg table stand. Total height from base to top is 18 inches.

Collapsible globe with case. See Map Collector #33, p28-29, an article by van der Krogt on this very globe. This was a "Gratis - Premie" or a gift to accompany the book of journeys and discoveries by Jules Verne, adapted for Dutch readers by Dozy, and published by Elsevier. The wooden case has "De Elsevier Globe" printed on the sides and top. Not in Lanman's "Folding or Collapsible Terrestrial Globes." The title translates "The Elsevier Globe, adapted from the latest sources under supervision of Dr. G.J. Dozy. Presented free with the Book of Expeditions and Discoveries..." This form of globe was inspired by Betts' New Portable Globe (an umbrella type globe) published in London beginning in about 1860 and continuing into the twentieth century (van der Krogt). The similarity between this globe and the Betts globe of the same period is such that one might believe that Betts made this globe under contract with Elsevier (see Dekker and van der Krogt "Globes from the Western World" p127).

Note
16" pair of Terrestrial and Celestial globes. These globes were originally issued by Copley and sold by Blunt in New York in 1852. Joslin revised and reissued them (this pair) in 1869, continuing until the 1890's (Warner). These are both floor stand models and are illustrated in Joslin's catalogue of the early 1870's (see our copy). Franklin Globes also issued the Copley Globes, but they may have been made by Joslin or Nims for Franklin (Warner). "National Park" is shown in the U.S. where Yellowstone Park was created in 1872, but we think this is anticipatory rather than after the fact. The "corrected to 1870" was usually done a year or two before the date (Coffeen). The Copley globes are beautifully executed, have a "modern" look, and are "extremely detailed, even to the point of obscurity" (Warner). Warner further states that "no examples of the Joslin 1869 state of these globes are known." This pair may be the only survivors. Copley won a gold medal in 1852 from the American Institute for the globes (see Transactions of the American Institute 1852, p124-5). Warner lists a Franklin 16" Terrestrial (3-88) by Nims that is similar to this. Total height from base to top is 43 inches.

By Cyrus Lancaster, Albany, N.Y.
List No
4093.000
Note
Wilson began making thirteen inch globes in 1821 (see Yonge p.69) and in 1835 Cyrus Lancaster (having assumed leadership of the firm after the death of Wilson's two sons in 1833) brought out a new edition of the thirteen inch globe with the American eagle in the cartouche (Dekker/van der Krogt p. 132). This 1850 edition of the terrestrial globe is not recorded in any of the listings - only an 1850 celestial globe is listed by Kimball. Therefore it is the latest known example of Wilson's terrestrial globe. The plates are clearly tired, the image of the cartouche is weak and some of the mountain ranges are barely visible. But there is much new engraving in North America, showing the new divisions in the west - California, Oregon, Utah, New Mexico, and the new cities - Mormon City, Sacramento, Stockton, Albuquerque, etc. It has been suggested that this is the first showing of Mormon City on a globe. With a four legged table stand and horizon ring; total height from base to top is 18 inches.

An uncommon 12-inch globe with crudely printed gores, colored politically, although the key indicates that it was sometimes colored to show the heights of land and depth of oceans (Warner: "In 1896 Cheney obtained a copyright on a 12-inch terrestrial globe, the colors indicating the height of land and depth of water."). Cheney published a "Globe Manual for Schools" in 1882, with later editions to 1897. The Cheney Globe Company was in business from 1888 to about 1900. This globe is a desk model with a three leg iron stand and horizon ring, total height 20 inches.

Note
Rand McNally's first globe was a 12" terrestrial produced in 1887 (Warner). This 18" floor globe appeared seven years later and is an impressive production. The graphic elements are very clearly rendered, in the best fashion of wax engraving. A horizon ring is still employed, with a metal stand that is unique and unusual, apparently of the "Aesthetic Revival" school of design that flourished at the end of the 19th century. Isothermal lines are shown for January and July, as are submarine telegraph cables. The gores show a water mark "& Sons" with a "96" below, so this globe had been issued in 1896. The political geography is pre 1898 and the Spanish American War (see Cuba, etc.). Total height from base to top of globe is 48 inches.
