CHARMING ENGLISH MINIATURE GLOBE SIGNED N. LANE 1776

N. Lane. New Globe of the Earth 2.75 inch orb with rather detailed surface dated 1776. Oceans finished in buff with strong equator, ecliptic and tropics of Cancer and Capricorn. As it also shows "Owhyhee Here C. Cook was Kill'd" one can assume it to be after 1779. Shows the track of Cook's voyage as well as Anson's tracks. Prime meridian still passes through the Canary Islands. Copper engraved gores over turned wood. In domed turned walnut desk case. Probably the same gores as Dekker (Greenwich) GLB0028. The gores signed "Prockter fc." Steel pins at both poles. Orb has had some recent professional restoration. N. Lane is known to have purchased and reused older gore plates some of which were used in the Nineteenth Century. This specimen is period and quite charming. N. Lane.
