Description

Terrestrial Globe With Compass.
Classic globes without a matching compass were considered incomplete. Our wonderfully constructed bronze and wood stand with paper globe includes true reproduction of 17th C. dry compass. Twelve paper gores applied to the globe are printed after originals drawn by Gerardus Mercator, the inventor of the Mercator projection, which was used from the 16th C. until the middle of the 20th C. Scientific, decorative, historical.
