[ object, globe ] Miniature Klinger Nuremberg globe in the original case

Nuremberg: J. G. Klinger [ circa 1860 ]. A very nice example of an all original Klinger Nuremberg globe. The globe itself is 1 5/8 inches in diameter, 1 7/8 inches including the brass pinions on each end. 12 hand-colored engraved full gores. The original display box is 2 3/16 inches across, and 2 1/16 inches high. The box is constructed from three concentric paper tubes. The innermost with two semi-circular cutouts on it's top edge within which the globe's pinions sit and rotate. The middle and outer tubes are sized so that the separate fitted top which protects the globe fits snugly. We have had minor conservation work done tosemi-circular cutouts, adding small brass semi-circles so the globe rotation no longer wears away at the paper (a failing common to these globes). The display box, quite nice indeed, illustrates children viewing a large globe at a table with a label "The Erde" and "The Earth" below. The globe itself is labeled in English. A beautiful example, with some patina from careful usage, but much nicer than often found. Near Fine. [26773]


Dekker points out that "Although the globe has [ J. G. Klinger'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). A rather dirty example of this globe sold at Bonhams in New York in October of 2014 for $3750 including premium.

A perfect gift for the person who loves cartography but has little space.
