  GLOBES 
image of [Eastern hemisphere gores for a 20" globe.]

SEUTTER, Matthäus.
[Globe gore sheets for the Eastern Hemisphere, with Australia]
[Eastern hemisphere gores for a 20" globe.] Augsburg, c.1710. Original colour refreshed. 245 x 325mm.
A rare sheet containing six engraved globe gores which, if assembled with the western sheet and two polar calottes, would make a globe with a 20cm diameter. The sheet covers Europe, Asia and Africa, an incomplete Australia ( called Nova Hollandia) and Terra Australis Incognita. Seutter's globe gores are rare, as are his globes: the National Maritime Museum globe collection only has the Celestial Globe from this pair. See DEKKER: Globes at Greenwich, GLBO112 for the celestial globe.

image of By the Queens Royal Letter Patent Betts's New Portable Terrestrial Globe Compiled from the Latest and Best Authorities. British Empire coloured red.

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.
