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.

image of Nova et Accuratissima Totius Terrarum Orbis Tabula; Americæ nova Tabula; Asia noviter delineata; Africæ nova descriptio; Europa recens descripta.

BLAEU, Johannes.
[A superb set of World & four continents from the 'Atlas Major']
Nova et Accuratissima Totius Terrarum Orbis Tabula; Americæ nova Tabula; Asia noviter delineata; Africæ nova descriptio; Europa recens descripta. Amsterdam, 1662. Original colour. Five plates, each c.410 x 540mm.
A fine set of five maps from the most expensive book published in the 17th century, an eleven-volume atlas containing 593 hand-coloured maps. For this edition Johannes Blaeu replaced the world map engraved by his father in 1606 and used in Blaeu atlases since 1630 with a new double hemisphere map, the only Blaeu atlas map to show California as an island. The highly decorative borders have two cartographers and allegorical figures of the known planets along the top and the Four Seasons underneath. Shirley writes that 'the engraving and layout and elegance of decoration are of the highest standard. The map is invariably printed on thick paper of quality and often superbly hand coloured'. Each of the continents has lateral borders of native dress and nine city prospects along the top. KOEMAN: Bl 56; SHIRLEY: World 255; BURDEN: 189; WALTER: 25; NORWICH: 32; BORRI: 126.
