Note:
The first edition of Betts' collapsible 15-inch "umbrella" type globe. The date is estimated from the U.S. geography. Later editions continued to the end of the century. In the original wooden box with advertisements for Betts' geographical products. It is interesting that the color is printed onto the gores - thus being a fairly early example of color lithography.
