EXCEPTIONAL FULL MOUNT FLOOR GLOBE

Fitted atop a cast iron baluster column with acanthus leaf embossing, raised on cast iron tripod legs with incurvate right angle knees with similar embossing ending in inverted trumpet flower feet. On wooden casters. The U.S. west shows the boundaries of the immediate post Civil War with the Gadsden Purchase boundary with Mexico (1854) incorrectly defined. The Dakotas are as yet undivided since this occurred in 1889. Equatorial horizon ring shows old repair with some losses to its steel engraved paper scales that show zodiac signs and precise year time and seasons. Surface loss in southern Africa area otherwise nicely preserved. Overall height 42.5 inches. Fine private library globe. I.D.#04394. SOLD.

RARE EGYPTIAN REVIVAL TRIPOD FLOOR STAND. WITH "NATIONAL PARK"

Joslin, Gilman. Joslin's Terrestrial Globe containing all the late discoveries and  geographical improvements, also the tracks of the most celebrated circumnavigators. Compiled from Smith's new English Globe, with  additions and improvements by Annin & Smith. Revised by G.W. Boynton.  Manufactured by Gilman Joslin. Boston. c1873. (after 1872, before 1889). Handsome 12 inch floor globe with engraved and  hand colored gores over an orb of hollow metal dressed in  plaster. Time scales at North and South Poles are part of the  gore surface design, large analemma scale in Pacific. Oceans  finished a subdued tan, some exploration voyage track dated.  Engraved brass full ring meridian set within a cast iron conforming cradle supporting wooden horizon ring with paper scale.

Overall height 39 inches.  Western United States shows National Park (1872) and Dakota Territory undivided. Very nicely preserved without blemishes to orb, few spots on horizon ring scale. American globes prior to 1890 often used pre-Civil War maps as  their basis, updating geographical boundaries in colored inks on  the surface during coloring. Visual beauty rather than geographic timeliness was often the rule. Boynton's revision makes real changes to the engraving plate, "National Park" (Yellowstone) being one. The beginning of accuracy in American globe cartography. On a rare and exquisite floor stand. A true conversation piece. I.D.#10432.

Superb 30 Inch Floor Globe from Los Angeles Scottish Rite Temple, Gift from Class of March 8th 1912

W. & A. K. Johnston. Edinburgh. 30 Inch Globe / Weber Costello Co. / Chicago Heights, Ill. / 1912.  It is fitting that the globe gores were printed in Scotland by W. & A. K. Johnston, as this magnificent globe was "Presented by Class of March 8th 1912" as a gift to the Los Angeles Scottish Rite Temple. The globe was given within weeks of HMS Titanic's voyage possibly with a similar fine globe on board. The Masons kept it in superb condition for nearly a century at Hope Street and then 357 Wilshire Blvd.

This appears to be a custom made Scottish set of paper gores which, unlike other 30 inch floor globe models using the Johnston gores we have in stock, displays a select group of cities in much larger red letters, such as Hamilton (Ontario), Havana, Santo Domingo, Mexico (City), Cartagena, Caracas, Lima, Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Ayres, (and other South American Capitals), European capitals from Dublin, Edinburgh, London to Madrid, Rome, Athens, to Stockholm, Berlin, Budapest and Christiania. Bombay, Cairo and Constantinople are the only cities highlighted in Asia or Africa. The Russian Empire has St. Petersburg (pre-1913), Trans Caspian Province, and The Steppes in Central Asia below Western Siberia. The ŇAustria Hungarian MonarchyÓ includes Budweis & Prague in Bohemia. China and Japan are also major empires. Korea is the name above Seoul and Cho Sen (Jaoanese controlled) is below. Submarine cables stretch like spider webs across oceans. 16 cross the North Atlantic dating from 1873 to 1901. Ship lanes and distances are given in this the year of HMS TitanicŐs tragic maiden voyage. Three notations near the North Pole give farthest points reached.

The 30 inch plaster orb with shellacked paper gores is mounted in an unpolished and engraved brass meridian which sets on roller bearings within a full mount cradle with four conforming braces supporting the horizon ring. The months and astrological signs of the original horizon ring paper are perfectly preserved. A massive 10 inch square plinth above four extended feet with casters supports the globe and cradle. The stand is a rich, dark mahogany. Except for a few imperfections, such as minor abrading of shellac, the entire ensemble is in superb condition, a tribute to the care exercised by the Los Angeles Masons in their 98 year stewardship.  Provenance photos and documents available.  I.D.#14801SOLD.

Near title lettering is a label in English explaining the locating of sites of all recorded undersea and terrestrial eruptions. All other surface designations are in German. Atypically mounted, not in the usual earth axis but to aid study of the Southern hemisphere, on a massive mahogany tressle stand with two turned columns and stretchers, a brass compass mounted in the center of the cross member.
