Klinger Nuremberg globe in original case

Nuremberg: J. G. Klinger c 1860. Very nice example of a Klinger Nuremberg globe. This one is 1 5/8 inches in diameter, 1 7/8 including the brass points on each end. The display box appears original, with an inner thick paper tube with two small semi-circular cutouts which the globe's brass pinion's rotate on, and an outer paper container which protects the globe and provides for a handsome display. We had Matt at Green Dragon Bindery add several small brass pieces to the semi-circular cutouts so that the globe, when it rotates, no longer damages the thick inner tube (a failing common to these instruments). The wonderful display box is 2 3/16 inches across, and 2 1/16 inches high and shows children viewing a large globe at a table. "The Erde" is the label on the top of the display box. Very Good.

Dekker points out that "Although the globe has Dekker's name on it, it must have been published after his death, since it shows Wilkes' Land, which was discovered in 1840-42" (Globes at Greenwich GLB0017).
