Note:
An uncommon 12-inch globe with crudely printed gores, colored politically, although the key indicates that it was sometimes colored to show the heights of land and depth of oceans (Warner: "In 1896 Cheney obtained a copyright on a 12-inch terrestrial globe, the colors indicating the height of land and depth of water."). Cheney published a "Globe Manual for Schools" in 1882, with later editions to 1897. The Cheney Globe Company was in business from 1888 to about 1900. This globe is a desk model with a three leg iron stand and horizon ring, total height 20 inches.
