BETTS, John.
[A Victorian collapsible globe]
By the Queens Royal Letter Patent Betts's New Portable Terrestrial Globe Compiled from the Latest and Best Authorities. British Empire coloured red. London, George Philip & Son Ltd, & Liverpool, Philip Son & Nephew, c.1880. Printed waxed cotton globe with 'umbrella ' mechanism, metal spindle and hanging ring. Globe circumference 1260mm extended, 770mm long including spindle. With the original wooden box wih title and publisher's adverts inside.
An early example of this unusual collapsible globe, made spherical by pushing a metal tube upwards along the spindle, It shows the British Empire covering approximately a quarter of the Earth's total land area. The globe's mechanism was invented by John Betts in 1860; this example is a later issue by G. Philip & Sons who manufactured them after Bett's death c. 1863 to c. 1925. We have estimated the date of this example by the marking of Charlotte Waters in Australia's Northern Territory, discovered 1871; and Bolivia having a Pacific coast, lost to Chile in 1883. Undoubtedly the reason for the superb condition of this globe is the original solid wood case.

An unusual collapsible "umbrella" globe, showing the British Empire when it had a population of 450 million and covered approximately a quarter of the Earth's total land area. The globe's mechanism was invented by John Betts in 1860; this example is a later issue by G. Philip & Sons who manufactured them from Bett's death ca. 1863 to ca. 1925. We have estimated the date of this example by the description of St Petersburg as "Petrograd (Leningrad)" (renamed by the Soviets in 1924), and the separation of Transjordan from Palestine (1922) but before full independence from the British (1928). Undoubtedly the reason for the superb condition and cleanliness of this globe is the original cardboard tube.
